Cardiac Rehabilitation

Improving Your Health and Life after Heart Disease

If you’ve had a heart attack or other heart condition, you want to do everything you can to take care of yourself. That’s what cardiac rehabilitation is all about – helping you get fit and make lifestyle changes that can help keep you and your heart healthy.

People of all ages with heart conditions can benefit from cardiac rehabilitation. Your doctor may refer you for cardiac rehab if you have or have had a:

  • Heart attack
  • Heart condition such as coronary artery disease, angina or heart failure
  • Heart or heart valve surgery or procedure

Cardiac rehab can help you:

  • Reduce your chances for another heart attack or heart problem
  • Control symptoms related to your heart condition
  • Reduce or manage stress
  • Prepare to return to work or other activities safely
  • Stay out of the hospital and possibly live longer

More than Exercise

Our cardiac rehabilitation facilities have a variety of exercise equipment – free weights, treadmills, stationary bikes, rowing machines, stretch bands – to help improve your cardiovascular endurance, strength and function.

But cardiac rehabilitation is more than just exercise. We’ll also work with you to find ways to stay healthy as you live your daily life. We’ll counsel you about:

  • What kinds of activities are best for you
  • How to exercise at home or at the gym
  • How to eat right for your specific needs and condition
  • Other ways to take care of yourself and your heart

You may also benefit from participation in a special intensive cardiac rehabilitation program called the Ornish program.
