- OUTPATIENT PHYSICAL THERAPY POST-CARDIAC CONDITIONING
An individualized treatment plan will be created for “deconditioned” patients who need the skilled intervention of a physical therapist to improve endurance, gait, and balance.
This level of care is ideal to bridge the gap for patients finishing inpatient cardiac rehabilitation and now ready for increased strenuous exercise.
This maintenance program is specifically designed to lower risk of heart attack, improve general level of fitness, and promote overall health and well- being. Included are individual exercise prescriptions based on the participant’s prior medical evaluation and progress in the supervised exercise sessions.
The group exercise sessions include multi-station aerobic exercises in our outpatient rehabilitation facility. These sessions are supervised by a certified Exercise Physiologist specially trained to work in cardiac exercise and prevention. Although participants will be exercising with many others who share similar needs, the program will be specifically designed for each individual.
