Persistence pays off in cardiac rehabilitation
At home or away, a rehab program can do wonders for your heart.
When cardiovascular disease rears its head, protecting your heart assumes extra importance and urgency. But so many threads are needed to weave a blanket of protection that it's easy to get tangled up or lose hold of what you need to do. A rehabilitation program, commonly called cardiac rehab, can help. Think of it as one-stop shopping for all your cardiovascular needs, from getting more exercise and learning about your medications to adopting a more healthful diet and easing stress.
