Post-Heart Attack Rehabilitation

Heart attack patients can take an extra step to significantly reduce their risk of a non-fatal recurrence by engaging in an intensive, long-term prevention program. 

After participating in a standard period of post-heart attack rehabilitation, patients who enrolled in a multi-faceted education and behavioral intervention program we found to significantly reduce their individual incidence of heart events. The program included sessions that helped patients with lifestyle factors such as exercise, diet, and weight control. The importance of this study rests with the fact that heart attack patients can help themselves by adopting healthy lifestyle changes that give their bodies the best chance of surviving. A physical therapist can help these patients pave their way to adopting a healthier lifestyle. 

Clearly, a good physical therapist is vital in post-heart attack rehabilitation. In fact, good physical therapist is central to recovery from many accidents, injuries, or illnesses. Our friendly therapists will work with you, one-on-one, to create a recovery plan tailored to your unique set of needs, whether you're recovering from a heart attack, surgery, or a car accident. We can also provide home visits for our clients who are unable to leave the house. Call us at 949-429-3220 to make an appointment or visit our facility at 27136 B. Paseo Espada, Suite 1103, San Juan Capistrano. 

P.S. Heart attack patients not previously accustomed to regular exercise should take a careful approach under the guidance of a physical therapist.
