Heart disease is the leading cause of death in the United States. Additionally, tens of millions of Americans suffer daily from lung disease. Individuals with cardiopulmonary diseases can benefit from our Cardiopulmonary Physical Therapy Program to improve overall health and reduce the likelihood of recurrence of disease. Cardiopulmonary physical therapy can also help individuals who are deconditioned from other long-term illnesses or injuries.
Cardiopulmonary physical therapy focuses on providing a well-rounded program that includes not only exercise but also education about disease management and prevention. Each individual will be supervised and trained in an exercise program that includes aerobic exercise, general strengthening, and balance training. The individual will also receive education about breathing and energy conservation techniques, nutrition, the importance of the cessation of smoking, and other ways to reduce cardiac and pulmonary risk factors.
