Peripheral Arterial Disease (PAD) occurs when the blood vessels in the legs are narrowed or blocked by fatty deposits resulting in reduced blood flow to your feet and legs. Reports suggest that about 12 million Americans suffer from this disease. PAD accelerates functional decline leading to physical disability, with the most common complaints being leg pain brought on by walking, exercising or climbing stairs.
