Usually a symptom in older people. This is a symptom in which due to poor circulation the muscles of the lower extremity, particularly the calf muscles, cramp due to lack of blood flow and therefore oxygen to the tissues as well as a build up of lactic acid which is produced secondary to normal use. The acupuncture increases the blood flow for removal of the lactic acid and a restoration of the oxygen to the tissues.
