February is American Heart Health month.
If you have a heart problem the Phase 2 Cardiac Rehabilitation program at Stevens Community Medical Center is designed to fit your individual needs. The program includes exercise sessions where a Physical Therapist and Registered Nurse will monitor how hard you are working while your heart is being checked for your pulse, blood pressure and rhythm. Cardiac Rehab counsels on heart health, stress reduction and nutrition. It also includes exercises, medication consultation, educational help with smoking cessation and dealing with risk factors.
Why Cardiac Rehab?
- Heart Attack
- Valve Replacement

Cardiac Rehab helps you feel better and stronger after a heart injury, but most importantly it can help you prevent re-occuring heart problems and will ultimately teach you ways to live a healthier lifestyle.
Listen to your heart, your health is counting on it!
