Raynaud’s disease is when the small arteries that circulate blood in the extremities, such as the hands and feet, become narrow due to vapospasms. Vapospasms are contractions that can occur due to stress or cold temperatures. The result is the affected areas feeling numb and cold as a result of the restricted blood circulation. It most commonly affects women and those living in cold climates. Raynaud’s disease usually does not involve treatment, aside from exercising to maintain good circulation and keeping warm with thick gloves and socks in cold weather. There are medications available to treat the disease if symptoms worsen.

I saw Dr. Green after several months of pain in the big toe and ball of my left foot. The pain started with a dance injury, so when an x-ray showed no broken bones or fractures, his first recommendation was rest and also laser therapy. When rest alone hadn’t taken away the pain from walking, […]
Outstanding ‘customer service’ from the moment I enter the office to the completion of the visit. P. S.
