The number one reason for patients not participating in a cardiac rehabilitation program after surgery is availability of care and the distance required to travel to a hospital based facility. Kitsap Physical Therapy and Sports Clinics provides rehabilitation services after a cardiac event at six of our outpatient physical therapy clinics. Care is provided on a one-on-one basis by a licensed physical therapist that has identified as the key person in this area. Participants will gain insight that includes: increase in knowledge of risk factors, improvement in physical activity, decreased risk factor profile, improved psychological and social functioning.
Clients will complete a HEART MANUAL that includes:
- Cardiovascular Risk Assessment
- Exercise Prescription
- Nutritional Counseling
- Stress Management
- Smoking Cessation and
- Pharmacological Management
Long-term success will be assured when a gym pass is provided to either Kingston Fitness or Silverdale Fitness allowing you to continue with the exercise program prescribed to you during your outpatient physical therapy services.
