Peripheral Artery Disease

Peripheral Artery Disease (PAD) causes blockages in the arteries of your legs that reduce blood flow to your limbs and can cause leg pain and cramping when walking. South County Hospital now offers a physician-referred, exercise-based rehabilitation program covered by most insurances. Our program meets three times per week and includes monitored, medically supervised exercise training and education to reduce risk factors. Information includes:

  • optimizing body weight
