Healthy Hearts Cardiac Rehabilitation
Cardiac rehabilitation programs have been around for more than 30 years. They have helped tens of thousands of people return to healthy, active lifestyles after suffering from a heart attack or undergoing a heart-related procedure.
At Cape Fear Valley we offer a medically supervised cardiac rehabilitation program that will help you recover from your cardiac problems in a safe and healthy way. Working with nurses and dietitians, we’ll help you to develop positive lifestyle patterns.
We will help you to reduce those coronary risk factors that can be modified through diet and exercise, such as elevated cholesterol and blood pressure, cigarette smoking, obesity and stress. We also will start you on a medically prescribed and supervised exercise program.
Since Coronary Artery Disease involves multiple risk factors, a multi-disciplinary approach is beneficial. The staff of Healthy Hearts is comprised of a variety of healthcare professionals: nurse educators and exercise physiologists, as well as a dietitian, psychologist and vocational rehabilitation counselor.
Getting involved in the Healthy Hearts Program may reduce your risk of further cardiac problems. In addition, angina patients may experience improvement in their quality of life. Often they are able to be more active with less angina pain than before training.
