Best Cardiac & Pulmonary Rehab
Cardiac rehab is usually the first step toward recovery after a cardiac event. Healthy Strides is available for those diagnosed with peripheral artery disease (PAD) and occasional claudication.
Cardiac rehab focuses on personalized and individualized treatment plans combined with exercise, education, nutrition, and stress management. We believe in participants taking an active role in their recovery while working closely with a rehabilitation team comprised of registered nurses, respiratory therapists, and exercise physiologists certified in Advanced Cardiac Life Support (ACLS).
Exercises are tailored to the participant’s specific physical abilities and needs. Throughout each session, blood pressure, heart rate, and rhythm as well as oxygen levels and blood sugar are carefully monitored using computerized technology.
Weekly educational sessions help attendees learn more about heart and vascular disease, risk factor modification, stress management, diet and nutrition, and many other topics designed to help patients successfully improve and manage their health.
Patients receive one-hour exercise sessions two to three times per week. Cardiac rehab is a prescription program that usually lasts 36 sessions or about 3 months.
