Podiatrists: First Responders for Vascular Disease
Many are aware of the risk factors of heart disease. However, fewer are aware that the blockages that can cause heart disease affect more than coronary arteries—they can also affect other arteries throughout your body. This condition is called vascular disease. Signs and symptoms for vascular disease often first appear in your feet.
Luckily, today's podiatrists are uniquely qualified among medical professionals to diagnose vascular disease based on their education, training, and experience.
Learn more about your risk for vascular disease with APMA's new "Podiatrists: First Responders For Vascular Disease" campaign. A suite of patient education materials are available, including a poster, customizable newsletter, and videos.
If you have a suspicious spot on your foot or ankle and are at risk for vascular disease, make an appointment with our office today.
