The MemorialCare Heart & Vascular Institute at Long Beach Medical Center offers a Supervised Exercise Training Program for Peripheral Artery Disease (PAD) through the Cardiac Rehabilitation Program. Patients in the program benefit from an established comprehensive program dedicated to risk reduction, including smoking cessation and a visit with a registered dietitian.
PAD is a narrowing of the peripheral arteries which provide blood to the legs, stomach, arms and head, and often results in painful muscle cramping. Supervised treadmill exercise is safe and the most effective non-invasive therapy for improving walking distances in people with PAD.
In addition to a completed referral form, Medicare requires beneficiaries to have a face-to-face visit with their referring physician and documentation of risk factor reduction and/or counseling for lifestyle management. Patients with PAD have a higher incidence of cardiovascular disease and require clearance for exercise.
