JAMA NetworkEffect of a Home-Based, Walking Exercise Behavior Change Intervention vs. Usual Care on Walking in Adults with Peripheral Artery Disease

Walking exercises have been found to improve outcomes for people suffering from peripheral artery disease (PAD). Specifically, among adults with PAD and intermittent claudication, a home-based, walking exercise behavior change intervention, compared with usual care, resulted in improved walking distance at three months. However, authors of the JAMA study concluded that further research is needed to determine the durability of these findings.
