Cardiac Rehab

Personalized Programs Utilizing Cutting-Edge Treatment & Diagnosis Technology

While nothing can turn back the clock and prevent what happened to your heart, you can improve your heart’s future. Cardiac rehabilitation is a medically supervised program that is useful for those who have sustained a heart attack or other cardiac event and patients who have had open-heart surgery, angioplasty, or ongoing chest pain.

Our primary goal is to help each client build up cardiopulmonary strength to prevent further cardiac problems and prevent post-heart attack hospital admissions and complications. Our rehab specialists are trained to help patients develop a healthier lifestyle by helping you modify their specific risk factors. For instance, you can promote your heart health by eating a healthy diet, quitting smoking, and working on self-soothing when you are stressed.

Am I Eligible for Cardiac Rehab?

You may be eligible for cardiac rehab if you have had:

  • Angina
  • Heart attack
  • Heart transplant
  • Heart valve replacement
  • Coronary stent
  • Coronary artery bypass surgery
  • Balloon angioplasty
  • Congestive heart failure

What Does Treatment Look Like?

During phase 1 (initiation), we will educate you about the cardiac event you sustained, inform you on your new medication, and provide guidelines for home activities. Following the first 12 weeks of cardiac rehab, a maintenance phase begins, with continued supervised exercise for as long as the client wishes to continue in the program. The multidisciplinary program includes help from the following specialists: doctors, dietitians, pharmacists, physical and respiratory therapists, stress managers, and psychologists.

Our patients exercise in a monitored environment on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays, following a progressive aerobic plan in the Cardiopulmonary Gym. Education is offered if special assistance is required to aid the individual needs of client.
