What is Claudication?

Claudication, also referred to as intermittent claudication, is pain caused by reduced blood flow to the lower extremities.  Claudication is a symptom of the disease called Peripheral artery or peripheral vascular disease (PAD or PVD) rather than a disease itself.

Claudication can cause:

  • Pain in calves, thighs, feet, or other parts of the lower extremities
  • Pain at rest, that gets worse with movement
  • Discolored skin
  • Weakness in leg
  • Aching or burning sensation in extremities
