How can I check the pulse of my legs?

Dr. James Strader

Feet: There are two spots in the feet with palpable pulses: on the surface of the foot right in the middle, and just behind the ankle bone on the inner ankle. These are called the 'dorsalis pedis' and 'posterior tibial' pulses, respectively. If they're ok, your circulation to the legs is usually ok.
