Recovery is a journey
Following a diagnosis of heart attack or heart failure, or after a procedure such as an angioplasty or heart surgery, participating in cardiac rehab is one of the best things you can do for your heart. Cardiac rehab helps you regain control of your health.
Cardiac rehab doesn’t change your past, but it can help you improve your heart’s future. Every little step you take toward heart health helps you take the next step, and the step after that. Fair warning: It’s not always easy. It’s not always fun.
But cardiac rehab is how you can lower your risk of a second cardiac event. It’s the path to feeling better than before.
Here are a few ways you will benefit from participating in cardiac rehab. You will:
- Lower your risk of a future cardiac event
- Eat better
- Lose weight
- Return to work
- Engage in daily activities you might have missed
