Can Exercise Help Prevent the Risk of PAD

Exercise alone may not be able to prevent the complete risk of Peripheral Artery Disease. This is particularly true if somebody develops Peripheral Artery Disease due to lifestyle habits or genetics. However, exercise can certainly modify some of the worsening risk factors. If patients control their diet well and exercise, they can prevent the progression of certain forms of Peripheral Artery Disease. In addition, patients who are suffering from claudication-type symptoms as a result of PAD will often benefit from specific rigid exercise programs. These programs, according to the data and literature, will also improve their overall lifestyle. Exercise may be challenging for patients with gangrene or non-healing wounds and significant Peripheral Artery Disease in the feet. In most of those instances, irreversible damage has already been done. Learn more at https://americanendovascular.com/can-exercise-help-prevent-the-risk-of-peripheral-arterial-disease-pad/
