Abstract
Objective: Intermittent claudication is one of the symptoms of painful Peripheral Arterial Disease in which walking was conventionally used treatment, though forcing patients with PAD to walk with increasing pain is challenging. The purpose of the study was to compare the effect of upper body strength training exercise vs. treadmill walking on intermittent claudication through which an alternative, effective, and pain free protocol could be implemented in the clinical settings.
Methods: In this study fifty four patients were enrolled in two groups through convenience sampling. Data were collected for 18 patients in Group A (upper body strength training) and 16 in group B (treadmill walking) for analysis. Independent t test was used for inter group comparison and ANOVA for intra group comparison of ABI, PFWD, MWD, HR, and WIQ. (p< 0.05)
Results: Comparison of both groups for PFWD, HR and WIQ were shown significant difference during post and follow up values while no apparent changes were noted in MWD and ABI. p values for pre-post and pre-follow up phases for all outcome measures except ABI were

Key words: Upper body strength training, treadmill walking, intermittent claudication
