Cardiac Rehabilitation

Cardiac rehabilitation reduces the incidence of subsequent cardiovascular events and improves your quality of life. Research shows that people who complete cardiac rehabilitation following a cardiac event increase their life expectancy by up to five years. Cardiac rehabilitation involves regular exercise and lifestyle education provided by a multidisciplinary team of health professionals.

Exercise, along with your medication, is the best way of preventing subsequent cardiac events. Individualised exercise programmes help to control symptoms of heart disease such as chest pain, fatigue and shortness of breath. Engaging in an ongoing exercise regime can stop and potentially reverse damage to the blood vessels in your heart. Structured, progressive exercise can help you to get back to your usual activities sooner, including work, hobbies and sport.
