What is Cardiac Rehabilitation?
Cardiac rehabilitation is a 36-session program that is clinically proven to strengthen your heart, reduce your chances of returning to the hospital and can increase your life expectancy by as much as five years. The 12-week program consists of either 1-on-1 or group sessions, which are all supervised by nurses and cardiac therapists and is entirely personalized based on your health history, medications and physical strength.
