Avoiding Stroke or Cardiovascular Disease

If you suffer from achy, painful legs and limbs, or hand or foot pain that worsens over time, you may be suffering from Peripheral Artery Disease (P.A.D.) or another serious circulatory condition. P.A.D. sufferers are more than six times likely to be at risk for heart attack or stroke and usually exhibit the following:

  • Cramps
  • Limb fatigue
  • Weakness in muscles of the limbs
  • Foot or toe pain that disturbs sleep
  • Sores, wounds or ulcers that heal slowly or not at all
  • Noticeable changes in color (blueness or paleness) or temperature of the limbs
  • Diminished hair and nail growth on affected limbs and digits
  • Pain in the legs, thighs or buttocks

At PrimeMedical, we offer ABI Testing for advanced Peripheral Arterial Disease (PAD) detection. ABI Testing compares blood pressure in your ankle to blood pressure in your arm in order to show how well blood is flowing in your limbs. ABI Testing can show whether Peripheral Artery Disease (P.A.D.) is affecting your limbs. If you or a loved one may be suffering from PAD, call PrimeMedical located in San Pedro, California today for a comprehensive consultation.
