Cardiac rehabilitation — also called cardiac rehab — is a customized program of exercise and education. Cardiac rehabilitation is designed to help you recover from a heart attack, other forms of heart disease or surgery to treat heart disease.
Cardiac rehabilitation is often divided into phases that involve monitored exercise, nutritional counselling, emotional support, and support and education about lifestyle changes to reduce your risks of further heart problems. The goals of cardiac rehabilitation are to help you regain strength, to prevent your condition from worsening and to reduce your risk of future heart problems.
Cardiac rehabilitation programs increase your chances of survival.
Cardiac rehabilitation is an option for people of all ages and with many forms of heart disease. In particular, you may benefit from cardiac rehabilitation if your medical history includes:
- Heart attack
- Coronary artery disease
- Heart failure
- Peripheral arterial disease
- Chest pain (angina)
- Certain congenital heart diseases
- Coronary artery bypass surgery
- Angioplasty and stents
- Heart transplant
- Heart valve replacements
Don't let older age hold you back from joining a cardiac rehabilitation program. Even if you're older than 65, you're likely to benefit from cardiac rehabilitation.
We at Fitness Holistic will provide the appropriate exercise program as a part of cardiac rehabilitation. We will carefully monitor you while you exercise to be sure you run no risk and will teach you how to avoid injuries when you exercise on your own.
If you've had a heart attack or heart surgery or if you have another heart condition, ask your doctor about joining our cardiac rehabilitation program.
Cardiac rehabilitation should begin while you're still in the hospital through hospital staff and continues with monitored programs in an outpatient setting until home-based maintenance programs can be safely followed.
