Cardiac Rehab

Cardiac Rehab

Cardiac rehabilitation refers to a medically supervised program designed to improve your cardiovascular health especially after instances like a heart attack, heart failure, and heart surgery. 


Cardiac rehab is broken up into three different parts, exercise, lifestyle changes such as eating healthier, and stress management. Exercise is an important part of treatment as it gets your heart pumping and your cardiovascular system working. It’s also important to be under proper care and supervision during your treatment to monitor your symptoms and progress to ensure you stay safe. Your program will be specially designed based on your needs and limitations. Exercise will start slow and slowly build, helping you gradually get stronger. 


Cardiac rehabilitation is a service we offer here at Reddy Care Physical and Occupational therapy. Our therapists will do a one on one evaluation and determine the best course of treatment. We have many tools in our clinic available to help ease your recovery and make your therapy sessions as smooth as possible. Our Solo Step (mounted track & harness system), for example, will allow you to move freely and work your muscles without the risk of falling. Patients recovering from a cardiac episode may also benefit from some sessions with one of our therapists who can help them learn new and easier ways to accomplish their activities of daily living.


Cardiac issues can be scary but making sure you get the proper care to recover to ease your recovery can be a small comfort in a potentially traumatic time. Call our team today to see how we can help!
