PAD Supervised Exercise Therapy (SET)
If you have peripheral arterial disease (PAD), ask your doctor about supervised exercise therapy (SET). SET can help you learn and practice healthy habits to manage PAD, relieve symptoms, and avoid complications like heart attack, stroke, or amputation.
What to Expect
Most patients attend three sessions a week for 12 weeks. Under the guidance of a registered nurse, you’ll perform exercises recommended by the American Association of Cardiovascular and Pulmonary Rehabilitation. These help:
- Improve blood flow
- Lessen pain
- Reduce cramping, numbness, weakness, and other symptoms in the legs
How to Get Started
You’ll need a doctor’s referral for SET therapy. Call 708.923.5188 to schedule an appointment or ask questions about SET.
