Millions With Leg Pain Have Peripheral Artery Disease

The motto, “No pain, no gain” is actually true for more than 8 million older Americans with peripheral artery disease (PAD). While walking is a source of pain for people with PAD, a condition caused by diseased or blocked arteries in the legs, it may be the best treatment according to Mayo Clinic. The best medicine might be doing 20-30 minute spurts of walking until it hurts, resting, and then walking.
