SUPERVISED EXERCISE FOR PERIPHERAL ARTERY DISEASE (PAD)
Cumberland Healthcare is now offering a 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 and 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 3 days a week for 1 hour for up to 12 weeks.
