"Healthy Living from Head-to-Toe"
Vascular Rehabilitation is a non-invasive exercise program that improves
maximal walking distance in patients with claudication, pain in the legs with
activity that subsides with rest.
| "If exercise were a pill, it would be the most
prescribed medication of all time!"
- Covert Bailey
This supervised exercise program is designed to increase pain-free walking
distance in patients with lower extremity peripheral arterial disease (PAD). The
program uses a walk/rest interval training program to train the leg muscles to
use oxygen more efficiently, therefore allowing patients to walk further without
pain. Rehab combines exercise and comprehensive healthy lifestyle education for
patients with PAD to enhance their overall cardiovascular health, promote
functional independence, & improve quality of life.
Most patients with Claudication do not exercise or walk on their own as
prescribed by most physicians. Vascular Rehab consists of a personalized
exercise prescription that teaches and motivates a patient to walk at a level
that will improve their pain free walking distance.
Rehabilitation is dedicated to improving the lives of people with
intermittent claudication, one step at a time!
