Cardiac rehabilitation

Cardiac rehabilitation is a branch of rehabilitation medicine/ physical therapy dealing with optimizing physical function in patients with cardiac disease or recent cardiac surgeries. It is a medically supervised program that helps improve the physical health and wellness of a cardiac patient. It helps in increasing the longevity and decreases the chance of getting another heart attack.

Cardiac rehabilitation is an exercise based program designed to increase the endurance of cardiovascular system of cardiac patients. At REVIVE, our team takes care of the special needs of each and every patient, supports them during the phase of recovery and educates them about heart healthy habits. The exercise prescription is completely dependent on the cardiac condition of the patient, the severity of condition, the type of surgical intervention and any other associated medical condition (diabetes or hypertension). Our team also educate the patients on living healthier life and helps them in adapting a more appropriate life style modification.
