American Heart Association reports Home-based Walking Program eases clogged Leg Arteries

 

American Heart AssociationDallas, TX – A home-based exercise program helped people with clogged leg arteries walk farther and faster, according to new research in the Journal of the American Heart Association. The program was beneficial even 12 months after participants started the program.

Previously, studies have shown that supervised exercise can improve walking and lessen the symptoms of peripheral artery disease (PAD), but this is the first to document the long-term benefits of a home-based walking program.

Physicians should recommend walking even if their patients don’t have access to a supervised exercise program. (American Heart Association)

They speed around in orbits a fraction the size of Mercury’s, blasted on just one-side by starlight hundreds of times more intense than the gentle heating experienced by Jupiter here at home.”
