Intermittent Claudication

Intermittent Claudication

Intermittent claudication is a name for pain in the legs as a result of a narrowing or blockage of an artery in the legs. A more often mentioned name is display legs. The condition of shop-window legs takes its name from the fact that people keep standing still while walking because of pain in one leg.

We are a member of a nationwide network in which supervised walking therapy for patients with peripheral arterial disease (intermittent claudication) is offered by specialized physiotherapists. Participating in ClaudicatioNet means meeting quality requirements to guarantee transparent and high-quality patient care. Physiotherapists who become a member of ClaudicatioNet therefore receive extra training to become an intermittent claudication therapist.
