Dr. Knox Explains Peripheral Arterial Disease (PAD)
Dr. Jason Knox of Neuhaus Foot and Ankle in Middle Tennessee talks about Peripheral Arterial Disease, known also as PAD. With PAD, the arteries in the patient's legs become filled with plaque, which can block the blood flow to the ankels and feet. The main symptom for PAD is pain in the leg muscles when the patient is sleeping or exercising/walking. We have a test we can run in the office to see if you have PAD, so if you suspect you may have this disease, request an appointment with our office online or give us a call at 615-220-8788 or toll-free at 888-713-0906. Or, contact your local podiatrist. It is important to have PAD treated.
