Cardiac rehabilitation, or “cardiac rehab”, is a personalized program of exercise and education. Cardiac rehab can help you recover from a heart attack, heart disease, or heart surgery.
At PLHC, cardiac rehab covers four areas important to help you recover and enjoy better health: monitored exercise, nutrition counseling, emotional support, and education about reducing stress in your life. The goals of cardiac rehab are to help you regain strength, to prevent your condition from worsening, and to reduce your risk of future heart problems.
Cardiac rehab programs have been proven to increase your chances of survival after a heart event. Both the American Heart Association and American College of Cardiology recommend cardiac rehab programs. PLHC’s Cardiac Rehab Program has been certified by the American Association of Cardiovascular and Pulmonary Rehabilitation (AACVPR) since 2002.
A return to better health after a cardiac event is possible with the help of PLHC’s Cardiac Rehabilitation services. For more information on Cardiac Rehab- click here.
