What is Healthy Leg Day?

We believe in using Interventional Radiology to provide our community with the very best treatments for vascular conditions and diseases.  That's why we have Healthy Leg Day, where you can come and get a free leg screening from our providers.

Our next Healthy Leg Day will be held on April 25th from 10:00am to 2:00pm

at Homecare America (2017 Plank Rd, Fredericksburg, VA 22401)

Vascular disease can cause a number of different symptoms, and these often present themselves in your legs. That is why we decided to provide a free leg screening to the community. We will help you find the root cause of your symptoms and recommend appropriate treatment. Come by Homecare America and get a free leg screening on April 25th. Plus, you'll receive a free compression hose fitting from our Sigvaris compression vendor and have the opportunity to save 20% on two or more pairs of compression hosiery. 

Do you need a leg screening?

Puffy veins, heaviness in your legs, and loss of hair on your legs can all be signs of deeper health concerns.

Varicose Veins

Varicose veins are more than a cosmetic concern, they are a symptom of a deeper health condition: superficial venous reflux disease. 

Symptoms Include:

  • Charley horse in calf
  • Discoloration
  • Heaviness in the legs
  • Night cramps
  • Pain in the legs
  • Restless legs
  • Swelling
  • Tiredness
  • Ulceration
  • Spider veins

Peripheral Arterial Disease

Between eight and ten million Americans suffer from Peripheral arterial disease (PAD). PAD is caused by blockages that decrease blood flow to the legs and feet. PAD is part of a systemic, whole body condition which can lead to heart attack or stroke. 

Symptoms Include:

  • Painful cramping in the leg when walking
  • Numbness, tingling, and weakness in the lower leg
  • Cold legs or feet
  • Color change in skin of a leg or foot
  • Loss of hair on a leg
  • Pain in a leg or foot that awakens you at night
