Improving Patients’ Mobility and Quality of Life

Peripheral artery disease (PAD) is the narrowing of arteries, most commonly in the pelvis and legs. It reduces blood flow to the kidneys and limbs. The most common symptoms of PAD are cramping, pain or tiredness in the legs or hip muscles while walking or climbing stairs, and the symptoms often go away when activity stops. Sometimes these symptoms can be mistaken for something else, but there are several simple tests the can diagnose PAD so patients who suspect they have it should talk to their physician. PAD can be managed with lifestyle changes and medication.
