Cardiac Rehab

Cardiac RehabWhen cardiovascular health is compromised or if the patient has experienced a serious incident, a structured rehabilitative program is in order. Individualized rehabilitation strategies — developed through consultation with physicians, exercise specialists, and nurses — maximize the health benefits and progress of each patient.

A significant part of cardiovascular rehabilitation is conducted in classes, three days per week, for varying periods of time depending on the patient’s specific condition. Instructor-led and video classes, support and social groups, and individual and group exercise routines speed recovery.
