Cardiac rehabilitation has been a game changer
By Phil Odom
Cardiac rehabilitation at Carolina Pines Regional Medical Center has been a game changer in my life. Prior to quadruple bypass surgery my exercising was based on available time/priority with exercising usually losing. out.
This program with dedicated, knowledgeable nurses/exercise specialists starts with an assessment of your current physical health and takes you through a structured and monitored exercise program that’s right for the individual. After the initial 12 weeks, a maintenance program is available to continue your exercise program.
After many years of the initial and the maintenance program, I continue to have increased physical strength and my stamina has increased by leaps and bounds, thereby helping to prevent future heart problems. The time I have spent in cardiac rehabilitation has significantly. improved my quality of life.
