Been Stuck Inside All Winter? Schedule a Free PAD Screening Soon!
If you’ve been stuck inside all winter, it’s essential that you schedule a free PAD screening soon. With symptoms exacerbated — and hidden — by sedentary lifestyles and cold weather, it could be very easy for the average person to overlook the signs of peripheral artery disease (PAD). Aches and pains are pretty common during winter, especially as we get older. And, while these pains can often be attributed to sub-zero temperatures, it’s not always a good idea to write them off so quickly. Are they recurring? Do the pains always plague the same part of your body? Are they accompanied by wounds that won’t heal? If so, we encourage you to call us immediately so that we can provide you with a free, thorough screening for peripheral artery disease.
Early signs of PAD often include…
- Pain that continues even after exertion has ceased
- Muscle cramping in the lower extremities or during times of exertion
- Unusually slow hair or nail growth on the legs and feet
- Lower temperatures in the lower extremities
Any of the above symptoms can be an indicator that you’re suffering from peripheral artery disease. If you’ve noticed them, we implore you to scheduled your free PAD screening today. An early, proactive attitude can go a long way towards getting a swift diagnosis and treatment recommendation.
