Benefits of Cardiac Rehabilitation

There are many benefits for those that participate in a cardiac rehabilitation program. Cardiac rehab participants experience an increase in their physical and emotional well being soon after beginning the program. They discover a new sense of self-confidence and an increased satisfaction in their quality of life. For many people, just getting over the fear of a reoccurrence is a tremendous relief.

Other benefits include:

  • Improvement in exercise tolerance
  • Improvement in cardiac-related symptoms
  • Improvement in the level of blood lipids (fats)
  • Improvement in the body’s ability to metabolize carbohydrates (sugars)

  • Increases awareness of cardiac risk factors
  • Reduces stress
  • Decreases the incidence of cardiovascular disease
  • Reverses the effects of heart disease
