Cardiac Rehabilitation Q & A

Why do I need cardiac rehabilitation?

Cardiac rehabilitation is a lot like physical therapy after an injury or after surgery. It’s a personalized wellness program designed to improve your health and help lower your risk of issues in the future. 

Your cardiologist could recommend cardiac rehabilitation if you currently have heart disease-related issues, or if you’ve had them in the past. Cardiac rehabilitation is beneficial for:

  • Angina 
  • Heart attack
  • Heart failure   
  • Cardiovascular disease 
  • Coronary artery disease

Sometimes, cardiac rehabilitation is recommended if you had a surgical heart procedure, such as a bypass, stenting, or angioplasty. Cardiac rehab often goes hand-in-hand with having a pacemaker, too. 

What happens during cardiac rehabilitation?

Your cardiac rehab plan is entirely tailored to you and your heart health. Cardio Metabolic Institute proudly serves as a New Jersey’s only Pritikin Certified Intensive Cardiac Rehab™ center, a proven heart health wellness and prevention program.

At Cardio Metabolic Institute, you can feel confident that you’re in the most capable hands. Cardiac rehabilitation can involve:

  • Exercise planning and fitness sessions in the on-site gym
  • Counseling for stress and improving emotional well-being
  • Nutritional and dietary counseling 
  • Weight-loss planning
  • Smoking cessation

Cardiac rehabilitation is an entirely comprehensive team effort that’s tailored to you. The team at  Cardio Metabolic Institute is diligent about ensuring you receive the education and tools you need to improve your heart health and reduce risk factors associated with heart disease. 

When will I have results with cardiac rehabilitation?

Heart disease doesn’t develop overnight. It takes time for the lifestyle changes you make during cardiac rehabilitation to make noticeable improvements. The cardiology team at Cardio Metabolic Institute has you check in regularly to monitor your health. 

They may take occasional blood samples, run stress tests, or perform an occasional electrocardiogram to ensure your heart health is improving. 

In many cases, your cardiologist starts noticing improvements, such as a reduction in blood pressure or cholesterol, within a few months.

Rest assured, with each passing day that you follow your wellness and prevention plan, your heart health is gradually getting better.
