Cardiac Rehabilitation is a four-phase, medically supervised exercise therapy program designed to help people with heart disease to return to a productive life by improving their health through physical activity.
The Cardiac Rehab program uses a multi-disciplinary approach of structured, progressive physical activity administered by trained therapists. Program participants and their families are educated about recognizing, preventing and treating cardiovascular disease.
Special emphasis is placed on modifying risk factors and recovering from the physical and psycho-social aspects of heart disease.
The outpatient cardiac rehabilitation is for patients who have been diagnosed with heart disease, which includes those who have suffered a heart attack or had heart surgeries. One phase of the program is applicable to those with cardiovascular risk factors, but who haven’t necessarily been diagnosed with a heart disease, including spouses of patients.
