Cardiac rehabilitation is a treatment program that helps improve the health and well-being of people who have heart problems. Cardiac rehabilitation includes exercise training, education, and counseling to help you get stronger and return to an active lifestyle. This program can help you get better faster and reduce any future hospital stays.
You will be assessed by a cardiac rehabilitation team. They will check your health history and do a physical exam. You may need blood tests, exercise stress tests, and other evaluations to make sure that you are ready to start cardiac rehabilitation.
