Cardiac Reconditioning is a multi-disciplinary program for patients with chronic heart failure who have a decrease in their ability to participate in daily living activities. Cardiac Reconditioning is aimed at patients who have completed a Cardiac Rehabilitation program following heart surgery or heart attack, or who suffer with Chronic Heart Failure.
The aims of Cardiac Reconditioning include improving cardio-vascular fitness, increasing endurance and improving general muscle strength and flexibility.
Our team works closely under the direction of the Rehabilitation Specialist (a Fellow of the Australian Facility of Rehabilitation Medicine or equivalent), in collaboration with you, your GP and other Specialists to achieve a holistic assessment and integrated treatment regime dedicated to minimising the effect of disability. Our multi-disciplinary team works with our patients to help them regain independence and resume their day to day life.
Cardiac Reconditioning is provided by the physiotherapists and/ or exercise physiologists on an individual basis and within small group physiotherapy gym sessions and may also include hydrotherapy sessions. Occupational Therapy and Dietician sessions are also available.
