Peripheral Arterial Disease (PAD)
PAD occurs when fatty tissue called plaque builds up on the inside walls of the arteries in your legs, causing them to narrow and reduce blood flow to your legs and feet. PAD often goes undiagnosed, a scary thought when
you consider that PAD can worsen, leading to increased pain, surgery, and increased risk of heart attacks or strokes.
• Sudden swelling of one leg
• Pain or tenderness in the calf muscle or groin
• Skin that is warm to the touch on the legs
• Fullness of the veins just beneath the skin
• Changes in the skin color (blue, red or very pale)
• Leg pain: cramps, fatigue, or heaviness in the legs
• Coldness or numbness in the lower legs and feet
• Foot or toe pain that disturbs sleep
• Wounds on feet that are slow to heal
Stand Up Against Leg Pain
Don't just assume Achy Legs are just about Old Age!
Varicose veins are large, bulging surface veins visible under the skin. They’re generally larger than an eighth of an inch in width, and are typically located along the inside of the calf or thigh. Varicose veins develop due to weakness of the vein wall and improperly functioning vein valves. Under gravity’s pressure,
these veins can continue to expand and, in time, may become longer, twisted, pouched, thickened, and painful.
"Improving your Cardiovascular Circulation isn't just a procedure to me and my team, it is about restoring you to do the things you once enjoyed but now without the pain. It's all about a higher quality of life."
“The treatment and care I received gave me my life back.
Without it, I would’ve lost my legs.”

Deep Vein Thrombosis (blood clots)
Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT) is a blood clot that usually forms in the veins of the lower leg or calf, and can extend to involve the larger veins of the upper legs
and thighs. Contraction or squeezing of the muscles around these veins sends blood back to the heart. A blood clot that develops in a deep vein can block this flow and cause complications.
Some doctors are cutters and some are healers.
