PTs Can Help Cardiovascular Health

Heart disease is the leading cause of death for both men and women.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (2022), in the United States alone, one person dies every 34 seconds from heart disease. Eating properly, not smoking, and exercising regularly are all important ways to improve your heart health.

But did you know Physical Therapy can help too?

Physical Therapy after a Heart Attack

Physical therapists can play a big role in your heart health. Whether you just suffered a heart attack or had major heart surgery, physical therapists will help you get back into activity safely through cardiac rehab.

We are also able to help you start up an individualized treatment plan to get you exercising regularly. These would be at parameters specific to your needs and goals, including the target heart rate you should be able to safely exercise at. Cardiovascular exercise increases your heart rate, which strengthens your heart. This can help lower your blood pressure, decrease stress, and decrease weight, all of which improve your heart health.

Sometimes when people get back into exercising, they suffer from body aches and pains. They may reaggravate an old injury, train too much, too soon leading to an overuse injury, or flare up a new area of pain. Physical therapists are also here to help prevent these roadblocks. We are movement experts and trained to treat a variety of conditions.

Be sure to call and schedule an appointment with one of our awesome physical therapists if you are interested in improving your cardiovascular health or need help with any other musculoskeletal condition.
