Cardiac Rehab should be happening at all stages of life but particularly after a cardiac event eg
a heart attack, stenting and cardiac surgery it is important that you embark on a rehabilitation
journey to optimise your own physical recovery and performance and also your emotional journey
after this often underestimated life changing event. In cardiac rehabilitation your own risk factors that
contributed to the development of your heart disease are addressed.
The heart disease risk factors are:
- Physical Inactivity
- High Blood Pressure
- High Cholesterol
- Family history
Other risk factors that are unmodifiable are
- Post menopausal women
It is important to be aware that cardiac rehabilitation is s lifelong commitment and needs to be
continued on an ongoing basis.
