Display legs / 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/cladicatio intermittent. The condition display legs/intermittent cladicatio derives its name from the fact that people keep standing still for a while while walking because of pain in one leg.
Chronic Care Network

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 Chronisch Zorgnet means meeting quality requirements to guarantee transparent and high-quality patient care. Physiotherapists who become members of Chronisch Zorgnet are therefore given additional training to become intermittent claudication therapist.
