Cardiac Rehab Program
Have you or someone you know had a heart attack, heart valve repair, or other cardiac procedure? Does your physician or cardiologist want you to continue or begin a new cardiac exercise program? Don’t know where to go or what to do? If you’ve said yes to any of these questions, then the Cardiac Rehabilitation Program at AIR Physical Therapy & Fitness is your answer. This program starts with a one on one evaluation by one of our physical therapists who will monitor your vital signs, review your medications, and discuss exercise restrictions and protocols so there is no confusion of what to do or anything to worry about. The therapist will determine the frequency and duration of your treatment and when appropriate, you will transition over to our fitness area where an AIR Fitness staff member will continue to monitor your vital signs and help you develop an individualized exercise program. After a cardiac event, it is essential to begin a structured exercise program to build lean muscle and endurance that will allow for a return to an improved level of function. We use equipment including blood pressure cuffs, pulse oximeters, and Holter monitors during exercises in PT and the gym to make sure that your heart is responding normally. Communication with your doctor is ongoing from the time you begin the program and periodically throughout to keep him or her informed as to how you are doing. Our goal is to allow you to be as independent as possible while still making sure you are progressing safely and working toward a healthier lifestyle. Ask your doctor or speak to an AIR staff member if you think this program would benefit you.
