Supervised Exercise Therapy (SET)
Explore Our Supervised Exercise Therapy (SET)
If you have been diagnosed with peripheral artery disease (PAD), you may be experiencing pain, tightness or cramping in your lower legs while walking because of reduced blood flow to your legs.
If the discomfort of walking limits you from having an active lifestyle, let the team at Memorial Cardiac and Pulmonary Rehabilitation Program help. Our multidisciplinary team will guide you with a personalized, safe, and effective exercise program, while also teaching you how to manage your symptoms, build strength, and gain stamina. By the end of the program, we want you to walk longer distances with little to no pain in your legs and return to the activities you enjoy.
Our experienced team includes:
- Clinical exercise physiologists
- Licensed registered nurse
- Licensed physicians
- Registered/certified respiratory therapist
- Patient financial service representatives
The SET program offers small group, personalized exercise sessions at our two rehabilitation facilities. Our team will oversee your progress and offer encouragement as you exercise in a safe environment with patients who have similar conditions. The primary exercise prescribed for our PAD patients includes walking on a treadmill (or the ground if you cannot use a treadmill). We also offer electrocardiogram (ECG) monitoring, if needed.
Your exercise therapy plan may also include some of the following training exercises:
- Walking therapy routine
- Cardiovascular (aerobic)
- Balance Mobility (flexibility and agility)
- Resistance (strength training)
- Posture/gait training
Your family is an important part of your rehabilitation journey. We encourage them to learn about your condition and how they can support you. Our educational program provides tools and resources to help you and your family prevent further health issues and manage stressors contributing to your illness and disease. Patients who complete the program benefit from a healthier diet, controlled blood sugar, a smoke-free lifestyle and more.
Our education classes and resources include:
- Home exercise prescription
- Nutrition counseling
- PAD management
- Patient- and family-centered goal setting
- Risk factor modification
- Stress management
- Tobacco cessation
Our team is ready to help you get started on your personalized exercise therapy program.
