About Our PAD Rehabilitation Program
Ohio State offers an outpatient service for PAD Rehab located at Outpatient Care Upper Arlington. This is a personalized program that helps improve the health and wellbeing of people with vascular problems.
The program includes 36 sessions of exercise training with exercise physiologists and registered nurses. Sessions last between 30 to 60 minutes. A patient's claudication pain threshold is monitored during exercise and adjustments are made to the exercise prescription as claudication pain improves. During the course of your program, the rehabilitation team will also help you set goals to address risk factors for worsening peripheral artery disease and support you as you work toward your individual goal.
You will be assigned a team member as your case manager who will help track your care and become your resource for any questions or concerns you may have as you progress toward achievement of your program goals.
