Cardiac rehabilitation

Cardiac rehabilitation (rehab) is a supervised program that uses exercise, education, and support to help people recover from a heart attack, heart surgery, or other heart problems.

Cardiac rehab may help you:

  • Have better overall health and a better quality of life.
  • Lower your risk for a heart attack or dying from heart disease.
  • Recover well after surgery.
  • Manage your symptoms.
  • Feel more hopeful and less depressed, stressed, or worried.
  • Have more energy and return to your usual activities.
