Vascular Rehab is a standard of care for Peripheral Artery Disease (PAD).  PAD is a circulatory issue in which narrowed arteries reduce blood flow to the limbs (usually the legs) causing symptoms, including leg pain, when walking (claudication).
PAD is also likely to be a sign of a more widespread accumulation of fatty deposits in the arteries (atherosclerosis), a condition that may also reduce blood flow to the heart and brain.

PeaceHealth's Vascular Rehab Program

PeaceHealth has developed a program that helps patients living with PAD improve their daily pain with walking.  It is a comprehensive exercise program with sessions 3-times-per-week for twelve weeks.  The rehab sessions focus on providing help and support including exercise coaching, smoking cessation, risk factor reduction and nutrition education. 

Benefits of Vascular Rehabilitation:

  • Decrease onset of pain with walking
  • Increase maximal walking distance
  • Improve blood flow through the vessels
  • Reduce the risk of future heart and other vascular problems
  • Lower blood pressure
  • Improve your dietary habits
  • Improve your quality of life
