Help for pain, cramping, aching or numbness in your legs
Peripheral Arterial Disease (PAD) is a narrowing or blockage in the arteries of the legs. Most people who have PAD do not have symptoms. However, some people feel fatigue, pain, cramping, aching or numbness in their thighs, calves or buttocks.
Rehabilitation can help
Rehabilitation therapists can develop an exercise program to help you reduce your PAD symptoms. Walking at least 30 minutes three or more days per week can also reduce your risk of future blockages. The program offers:
- Initial evaluation
- Up to 36 supervised exercise sessions using treadmills
- A stretching/flexibility and muscle-conditioning program
- Support for changing risk factors, including:
- Stopping smoking
- Controlling high blood pressure
- Lowering cholesterol
- Starting a regular exercise program
- Managing stress
PAD rehabilitation requires a referral. We will work with you and your doctor to design a program that is right for you. Some insurance plans cover PAD rehabilitation. For more information about your benefit coverage, call your health plan.
