We all know that the saying “Health is Wealth” goes a long way. Most of us have worked hard in life and provided for our family and if you are someone who is over the age of 50 it is about time to start planning retirement. If you are a parent or grand parent the idea of a healthy retired life where you can play with your children and grandchildren and enjoy family vacations is thrilling. But a healthy body is key to achieving this dream. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention 8.5 million people in the United States have PAD, including 12-20% of individuals older than age 60.General population awareness of PAD is estimated at 25%. PAD is often accompanied by the narrowing of the arteries that impairs blood flow and these effects are amplified in the elderly. The narrowing of arteries affects muscle activity leading to claudication– One of the classic symptom of PAD is intermittent claudication- pain in the legs with exertion such as walking, which is relieved by resting. PAD is a major public health burden and accounts for a large proportion of vascular disease in the United States. PAD is caused by abnormal blood flow to the lower extremities and is a major cause of morbidity and mortality in the United States, especially among the elderly, “The Elderly And Peripheral Arterial Disease”. PAD carries significant risks of pain, limited mobility, adverse vascular outcomes such as stroke and limb amputation if the flow of blood to the affected limb is completely blocked. Besides claudication there are other symptoms of PAD such as muscle fatigue, discomfort, or pain in the leg muscles that make it impossible to enjoy a healthy life.
