What is Cardiac Rehabilitation?
Cardiac rehabilitation is specialized, medically supervised support and guidance for people who have experienced a heart attack, heart surgery or other serious heart-related conditions. The program’s goals are to help patients recover, regain strength and mobility, reduce risk factors for future heart problems, and restore quality of life.
Cardiac Rehab Builds Better Heart Health
After a cardiac event, surgery or other cardiovascular issue, your primary care doctor or cardiologist will refer you to the Garnet Health Cardiac Rehabilitation Center near you. Our team of cardiac rehabilitation specialists will create a customized plan to help you recover, prevent future problems and build improved heart health.
To develop a complete picture of your health and heart-health goals, our cardiac rehabilitation team will conduct a thorough review of your cardiovascular health and any other medical conditions, risk factors for new or ongoing heart disease, medications, eating and exercise habits, physical-fitness level and overall lifestyle.
Our comprehensive cardiac therapy program focuses on improving cardiovascular health, increasing function and quality of life, as well as steps you can take to prevent heart problems. Your personalized plan may include:
- Supervised exercise – Your exercise physiologist will work with you to establish a safe, effective, individualized program designed to increase strength, stamina and lean body mass.
- Nutritional counseling – Our registered dietitian will help you adopt heart-healthy eating habits, which can help lower blood pressure, reduce cholesterol levels and manage weight.
- Medication management – Careful review and monitoring of cardiovascular and other medications helps you achieve maximum benefits with minimal side effects.
- Support groups – Share your story, connect with others who have been through similar experiences, and discuss opportunities to adopt a healthier lifestyle.
In addition, our cardiac rehabilitation team can help you make lifestyle changes that benefit heart health. These include weight loss, smoking cessation and stress management.
