Restless leg syndrome (RLS) is a condition that causes aches, pains, itching, or a tingling sensation in the legs, feet, or arms. Typically, when restless legs syndrome is occurring it can give your loved ones an unpleasant feeling and urge to move the body part that it is affecting. It distresses millions of people, but is more common among seniors.
Drug Free Treatments for RLS
Even though moving your legs may stop the pain, it is only a temporary relief for your loved ones. While there are some medications that can help reduce the pains and aches associated with restless legs syndrome, there are also some drug-free treatments that can help your loved one with this condition.
