Vascular Rehabilitation
Things to Know
Vascular rehabilitation is a specialized exercise program that is medically supervised by a team of cardiovascular nurses, exercise physiologists and other personnel. Vascular rehabilitation is conducted in a hospital outpatient setting by qualified personnel who are trained in exercise therapy for PAD.
  • Why Vascular Rehabilitation?

    The benefits of completing a vascular rehabilitation program include:

    • Improved quality of life
    • Increased walking distance before experiencing symptoms
    • Greater muscle strength and endurance
    • Reduced cardiovascular disease risk factors
    • More knowledge about your condition and overall health
  • Program Overview
    • Sessions consist of 30-60 minutes of therapeutic exercise training, including treadmill walking, stationary cycling and other cardiovascular and strengthening activities, depending on your individual condition and tolerance to exercise
    • One to three sessions per week for up to 12 weeks (36 sessions)
    • Five minute warm up and cool down period
    • Education on PAD, healthy lifestyle changes and risk factor reduction

    Medicare and many other insurance companies can cover a large portion, if not all, of the costs of vascular rehabilitation. Insurance benefits will be verified before patients enter the program.

  • Are You a Candidate?

    A doctor will need to diagnose you with PAD or intermittent claudication (IC) through evaluation and diagnostic tests before you can participate in vascular rehabilitation.

    Symptoms of PAD can include:

    • Painful and limited walking due to pain in the legs and calf muscles
    • Poor tolerance to activities of daily living while standing

    Contributing factors of PAD:

    • Presence of other health conditions such as diabetes, high blood pressure or abnormal blood cholesterol levels
    • Presence of heart disease, heart attack or stroke

    A doctor’s referral is required for vascular rehabilitation. A vascular rehab representative will work with you and your physician’s office to get you started.
