Health Tip: Your Doctor Has Prescribed Cardiac Rehabilitation

By on November 22, 2010

Cardiac rehabilitation may be just what the doctor ordered if you have heart problems and need to improve your health and well-being.

The U.S. National Heart Lung and Blood Institute says cardiac rehab may help by:

  • Reducing the risk of another heart attack or stroke.
  • Reducing the risk of a subsequent heart-related hospital stay.
  • Helping manage risk factors for heart disease, including high cholesterol, high blood pressure, and diabetes.
  • Promoting healthier lifestyle changes, such as getting regular exercise and eating a healthier diet.
  • Helping improve overall health and quality of life.
