Cardiac Rehabilitation is often needed to improve your health and help you recover after a heart attack, heart surgery, or to treat certain heart diseases. This typically a combination of exercise, lifestyle changes, and emotional support to help reduce the risk of further cardiovascular damage. Educating patients on keeping a heart-healthy diet, and eliminating risk factors such as smoking and drinking alcohol are the cornerstones of cardiac rehab.
Cardiac rehabilitation programs are recommended to help treat existing heart disease and reduce the risk of heart attack, stroke, and death. This is often a part of treatment for heart failure, coronary and peripheral artery disease, as well as after an angioplasty and heart or lung surgery.
Cardiac rehab will usually involve a preliminary evaluation of your physical health, limitations, as well as other conditions you may have. This will help your rehab team develop a customized plan that is unique to you. There will also be a combination of personalized exercise and diet plan, as well as education programs to help you develop a healthy lifestyle after rehabilitation. Throughout the process, there will also be continuous support from our team to ensure that you will be successful for years to come.
