If you have recently been diagnosed with heart disease, you might wonder if you will ever feel fit and strong again. Cardiac Rehabilitation is a safe and effective way to help you get back in shape and improve the overall quality of your life. Cardiac Rehab is a medically supervised exercise and counseling program that will help you overcome the physical and psychological impact of heart disease. Recent research published in the Journal of American College of Cardiology found that cardiac rehab participants had a 95% survival rate after three years compared with a survival rate of 64% among non-participants.
