February is American Heart Month. A healthy heart is central to good health. As you strengthen your heart, you improve your oxygen flow, lower your blood pressure and cholesterol, and reduce the risk of disease and strokes.
Did you know that seeing a physical therapist can improve your heart health? As trained professionals, we can guide you through exercises designed individually for you. Exercise creates a greater sense of well-being, which increases the heart's ability to pump blood. We can help you evaluate your lifestyle and suggest beneficial changes, which can slow or even reverse heart failure progression.
Working with a physical therapist can maximize your heart health, allowing you to continue to enjoy your life and the activities you love to participate in.
