Cardiac Rehabilitation

Programs to Recover From Heart Attack, Heart Surgery, & More

A cardiac event such as a heart attack or stroke is a scary event and is not something that should be taken lightly. Whether you are taking measures to prevent or recover from any cardiac related situation, it can be a long and tricky process that may result in life changing outcomes. Addressing the conditions that caused or might cause cardiac conditions is a key component in our cardiac rehabilitation department.

St. Croix Health’s Cardiac Rehabilitation department can be found on the third floor of our St. Croix Falls Clinic.

Do I Need Cardiac Rehab?

Cardiac rehab is a customized recovery program that is designed to address your specific cardiovascular issues. These programs typically include exercise training, heart health education, and counseling services to reduce stress. Patients typically receive a referral for cardiac rehab after a heart attack or heart surgery but may also be referred if you have high risk factors.

Cardiac rehab can help you:

  • Reduce damage from heart disease
  • Prevent future cardiac events and hospital stays
  • Address your heart disease risk factors such as high blood pressure, cholesterol, diabetes, obesity, lack of physical activity, and more
  • Create a new exercise routine
  • Reduce stress and anxiety
  • Create a healthier diet
  • Meet others who have had similar experiences to you

We work closely with you and your family to develop a treatment plan that is unique to you and meets your everyday needs. By the end of your rehab program, the lifestyle changes you made should start feeling like normal habits that you can easily integrate into your day-to-day life.
