Cardiac Rehabilitation

Cardiovascular disease (CVD) is the leading cause of death in the United States and a significant contributor to global mortality rates. Cardiac rehabilitation is a comprehensive approach designed to meet the unique needs of individual patients with various cardiovascular disorders. Commonly referred to as cardiac rehab, this specialized outpatient program combines exercise and education to support your recovery and enhance your overall well-being following a heart attack, heart disease, or heart surgery. Through exercise training, emotional support, and guidance on lifestyle modifications, such as adopting a heart-healthy diet, maintaining a healthy weight, and quitting smoking, cardiac rehabilitation aims to minimize your risk of future heart problems and improve your quality of life. Ultimately, the primary objectives of cardiac rehabilitation are to help patients regain strength, prevent the progression of their condition, reduce the likelihood of future heart issues, and enhance their overall health and well-being.
