Cardiac Rehabilitation

image Cardiac Rehabilitation is more than just "Physical Therapy" for the heart. At Winthrop-University Hospital it is a holistic philosophy of care that treats the person - not just their heart. Most patients with cardiac problems will benefit from this medically directed program of rehabilitation. Patients with cardiac disease must not only work to improve their physical condition, they must also adjust their social and mental status in reaching the optimal goal of cardiac rehabilitation. The goal of cardiac rehabilitation is to decrease each patient's risk of having an initial and/or repeat cardiovascular event.

From lifestyle changes to cooking and eating "Heart Healthy," cardiac rehabilitation is formulated to meet each patient's individual needs.

Winthrop's Cardiac Rehabilitation program includes;
  • Patient assessment, each program is designed to meet the needs of the individual
  • Ongoing patient education about the cardiovascular disease process
  • Progressive -medically monitored exercise program
  • Nutritional Counseling
  • Support groups and individual/family counseling
  • Smoking cessation
  • Weight reduction
  • Education about cardiac pharmaceuticals
  • Vocational and social service counseling as needed
Cardiac rehabilitation, much like a medication, is prescribed by your cardiologist. The planned program of rehabilitation is specific to your needs, to get you to a level of function which will enhance your lifestyle, allow to to make healthy choices...but most of all to enjoy life.
