How Cardiac Rehabilitation Can Help
Through medication, surgery, and other procedures your doctor can give you a new lease on life. However, the condition responsible for most cardiac problems-artherosclerotic heart disease-can still exist in your body. Cardiac rehabilitation helps modify the risk factors that contribute to heart disease, and seeks to prevent reoccurring problems.
Lifelong exercise plays an important role in cardiac rehabilitation. Exercise has been show to:
- Decrease anginal episodes
- Decrease the number of abnormal heart beats
- Lower blood pressure and cholesterol levels
- Decrease the incidence and severity of recurrent heart attacks
- Reduce the amount of medication needed
- Significantly increase your ability to work-and to play
A vital component of cardiac rehabilitation is education. Our team will teach you about your specific heart condition and medications, as well as risk factors and heart-healthy nutrition.
