Cardiac Rehabilitation

At Jacob Healthcare Center, cardiovascular rehabilitation is the process of restoring functional abilities degraded by a serious cardiovascular event or by a surgical procedure to preempt such an event.

Cardiovascular rehabilitation also includes attempts to reverse risk factors that have contributed initially to the disease process.

The program generally comprises of disease-related educational components, supervised prescriptive physical exercise, diet counseling and modification, cessation of tobacco use, psycho educational interventions aimed at adjustment and coping, and relaxation and stress management to lower non exertion-related sympathetic drive.
