Services Offered at Heart 2 Heart Cardiac Physiotherapy
Eight Week Cardiac Rehabilitation Programme
Our eight week programme consists of combined cardiovascular and weight training designed specifically for you taking into account your condition and your capabilities.
Each session consists of:
- A warm up to ensure coronary dilation
- Circuit based training which is prescribed specifically for you so that even though you are exercising in a group it is to your own capacity, not under or over exercising.
- A cool down bringing your heart back to your resting state
Prior to the session your blood pressure and heart rate will be measured and throughout the session your heart rate is monitored. Each week you will be progressed so that you will start to feel an improvement in your fatigue and breathlessness levels.
All your sessions are supervised by a cardiac physiotherapist. All our physiotherapists are chartered and CORU registered.
