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, but also an important wakeup call. Recovering from the immediate aftermath of a heart attack is only stage one. You now need to address the conditions that led to the heart attack in the first place. That is where cardiac rehabilitation comes in.

Cardiac rehab is a customized recovery program designed to address your specific cardiovascular issues. These programs typically include exercise training, heart health education, and counseling services to reduce stress.

St. Croix Regional Medical Center’s cardiac rehabilitation department can be found in the Kinisi Institute on the third floor of St. Croix Falls Clinic and in our Lindstrom Clinic.

Do I Need Cardiac Rehab?

Patients typically receive a referral for cardiac rehab after a heart attack or heart surgery. You may also be referred if you have high risk factors for heart attack or stroke.

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

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