Heart and Lung Disease
We understand that heart or lung disease is life-changing. We love helping our patients improve their health and confidence. If you have been diagnosed with asthma, emphysema, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, angina, coronary artery disease, heart attack and other conditions we are here to help you safely recover and gain back your strength.
Possible Treatment Options
We are one of a few practices to offer specialized cardiopulmonary rehabilitation services, helping you limit the effects of heart or lung disease, control symptoms, and reduce future risk.
Benefits include a decrease in blood pressure and heart rate. Your heart beats 10-15 bpm slower in water, so if you have a cardiac issue you will not stress your heart, yet you are still able to work hard to improve strength and exercise capacity. The pressure of the water also allows for an amazing training effect on the lungs and if you have pulmonary issues, like COPD, it can help increase your oxygen consumption.
Improve your heart and lung health with our customized land-based cardiopulmonary program. We provide one-on-one exercise training with diaphragmatic breathing techniques, education and close monitoring of vitals to keep you safe as you work towards achieving goals of increased strength, endurance and a return to the activities you love doing.
If you are suffering from heart and lung disease symptoms, don’t wait any longer to see a professional about your pain. These symptoms can present possible health risks when it is left untreated!
