Peripheral Artery Disease (PAD)

Peripheral Artery Disease and peripheral vascular disease is a slow circulation disorder when organs such as the brain, heart and legs cannot receive adequate blood flow for normal function.

Symptoms of PAD/PVD may include:

  • Changes in the skin
  • Diminished pulses in the legs and the feet
  • Gangrene (dead tissue due to lack of blood flow)
  • Hair loss on the legs
  • Impotence
  • Non-healing wounds over pressure points, such as heels or ankles
  • Numbness, weakness, or heaviness in muscles
  • Pain at rest, commonly in the toes and at night while lying flat
  • Pallor when the legs are elevated
  • Reddish-blue discoloration of the extremities
  • Restricted mobility
  • Severe pain
  • Thickened, opaque toenails
