Peripheral artery disease (PAD) is a circulatory problem in which narrowed arteries reduce blood flow. Arteries carry blood from the heart to the extremities. Plaque builds up in those narrow tubes, restricting blood flow as a result.  PAD affects your extremities — usually, your legs —  and the blood flow cannot keep up with the demand.

PAD can cause sharp leg pain and cramping, particularly after exertion. Other signs of PAD include uneven hair and nail growth on legs and body temperature differences in limbs.



Leg Circulation (PAD)

Peripheral Arterial Disease is a serious vascular condition involving the buildup of plaque within the peripheral arteries of the legs and feet causing problems with circulation. ProActive Heart & Vein Center offers advanced treatments to relieve symptoms and treat PAD.
