SUPERVISED EXERCISE FOR PERIPHERAL ARTERY DISEASE (PAD)

The PAD program is a medically supervised exercise program for people with intermittent claudication or pain in their legs with walking due to poor circulation to their legs. A decreased amount of blood reaching the muscles in the legs makes them hurt with activity.

CONDITIONS:

  • Unexplained leg pain or cramping with exercise or walking
  • Leg or foot wounds that are slow to heal
  • Skin problems or discoloration on your legs and feet and/or poor nail growth
  • Cooler skin temperature in one or both legs
  • You have a history of diabetes, currently smoking or have smoked in the past, have high blood pressure, high cholesterol, history of heart diseases

OUR INTERVENTIONS:

  • Start you on a safe, monitored exercise program
  • Assist in smoking cessation
  • Assess personal risk factors for heart and blood vessel disease
  • Assist with stress management
  • Provide education and support to make healthy lifestyle choices in diet
  • Monitor and help control blood pressure, cholesterol, and diabetes
  • Work with your doctor to improve communication about your progress

Cumberland Healthcare now offers supervised exercise therapy (SET) for people with PAD. Symptoms of PAD include pain or cramping in the calf, thigh, or hip, especially during exercise; numbness and weakness in the legs; sores on toes, feet, and legs that will not heal; coldness in the lower leg and feet; and shiny skin on legs and/or feet. The program is recommended for all patients living with PAD to increase their mobility, help relieve their symptoms, and improve their quality of life. By treating PAD, you will be reducing your risk of heart attack, stroke, and amputation. The staff will help you develop an exercise program that is individualized to your specific needs. Exercise sessions will meet three days a week for 1 hour for up to 12 weeks.
