Every year, about 805,000 people in the United States have a heart attack. 605,000 are a first heart attack, while 200,000 happen to people who already had a heart attack (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention). Are you ready to decrease your risks?
The American Heart Association and the American College of Cardiology strongly endorse cardiac rehab for people who have had a heart attack, heart failure, or other heart problems requiring surgery or medical care. Cardiac rehab is a medically supervised program that includes exercise, support, and education. There are three phases of cardiac rehab:
Phase 1: Inpatient
Phase 2: Outpatient
Phase 3: On your own
The goals of cardiac rehab include improving your quality of life by increasing your ability to manage heart disease, decreasing your risk of a heart attack, and helping you recover from a heart attack. Cardiac rehab involves exercise training and education about lifestyle changes necessary to reduce heart disease. While intense cardiac rehab begins in the hospital, care should be continued long-term for the best results. Let our team at Rainey Pain & Performance help you continue cardiac rehab. Our cardiac rehab is geared to help you transition from Phase 2 (outpatient) to Phase 3 (on your own).
We utilize Kardia Devices, the world's most clinically validated personal EKGs, providing accurate EKG results and a more comprehensive range of arrhythmia detections than any other smart device. We monitor blood pressure, oxygen saturation, and continuous heart rate monitoring to see how hard you work to get the most out of your time. Monitoring takes the guesswork out of how rigorous your activity should be. The intensity and volume of your exercise will determine your results. If there are any concerns, we contact your cardiologist immediately and won't resume unless you (the patient), we (the cardiac rehabilitation experts), and your cardiologist are on the same page.
At Rainey Pain & Performance, we desire to build your confidence and help you get stronger sooner. Having a heart attack or heart issue can be scary. Let us provide support and help you live a longer, fulfilling life.
