Cardiac Rehabilitation

Treatment for heart disease often involves some type of cardiac rehabilitation. People generally start this program in the hospital and continue it in an outpatient facility.
 
Exercise training is the first part of a successful rehabilitation program. Your therapist will show you how to exercise safely, strengthen your muscles, and improve your stamina. The second part of the program involves education, counseling, and training to help you reduce your risk for future heart problems.
 
Cardiac rehabilitation is often recommended for angina (chest pain) or after bypass surgery, angioplasty, a heart transplant, or a heart attack. You will need your healthcare provider's approval to get started.
