Cardiac Rehabilitation

Learn more

Cardiac Rehabilitation is an individualized and personalized treatment plan. It includes supervised integration and instruction of physical activity designed to improve heart function based on your personal health and cardiac health issues. Cardiac Rehabilitation programs are personalized for every patient and begin with an assessment of your overall health status.

You may be appropriate for cardiac rehabilitation if have had any of the following conditions:

  • Heart attack
  • Cardiac surgery – such as coronary bypass, valve surgery
  • Coronary artery angioplasty or stent placement
  • Angina
  • Heart failure
  • Heart transplantation
  • PVD (peripheral vascular disease)

Benefits of Cardiac Rehabilitation include:

  • Live longer and reduce your chances for another heart attack
  • Control heart disease symptoms (i.e. chest pain, shortness of breath)
  • Stop or reverse damage to blood vessels in your heart
  • Reduce the physical and emotional effects of heart disease
  • Improve your stamina and strength, helping you return to activities – including work, sports, hobbies and exercise

In most cases, early phases of Cardiac Rehabilitation are covered by health insurance. Coverage may vary depending on your specific health plan and may include certain deductibles and co-payments.
