Cardiopulmonary Rehabilitation

If you’ve been diagnosed with cardiovascular disease or a chronic lung condition, or if you’ve had a major event such as a heart attack fear begins to build about what the future holds. Cardiopulmonary rehabilitation is the way to regain the best possible health, improve your quality of life and build hope for the future. Our specialists support the medical, emotional and social challenges you face as a result of heart and lung disease. Both programs are certified with the American Association for Cardiovascular and Pulmonary Rehabilitation.

The effectiveness of cardiopulmonary rehabilitation is well established. It improves physical health and overall ability to function. It may stabilize or slow the progression of heart and lung disease. But medical interventions are only one part of the healing process. Lifestyle changes may also be necessary, and that’s where your dedication and hard work make all the difference.
