Why is Cardiac Rehabilitation important?There is clear evidence that heart disease risk is influenced by lifestyle. In large studies it has been shown that participation in a comprehensive cardiac rehabilitation programme can reduce the risk of future heart attacks by 20 to 25%. It has also been shown to improve general health and well-being. Cardiac rehabilitation provides patients and their families with a programme of education, physical activity and support which complements standard medical care.
With the right information and action you can improve your health and reduce your risk of further heart problems.
