Post Cardiac Rehabilitation
Cardiac rehabilitation is an important program for anyone recovering from a heart attack, heart failure, or other heart problem that required surgery or medical care. Studies have found that cardiac rehabilitation helps men and women, people of all ages, and people with mild, moderate, and severe heart problems.
After a heart attack it is important to begin a regular activity program to help reduce the chance of having additional heart problems. Your doctor will let you know when it is the right time to begin an exercise program. Most patients are given a prescription for Cardiac Rehabilitation. Patients who join cardiac rehabilitation programs have a faster and safer recovery and better outcomes after a heart attack.
