The range of conditions that affect our cardiovascular health and system comprising of the heart, blood vessels, and the arteries are collectively known as cardiac diseases. Some of these include coronary artery disease, arrhythmia, congenital heart defects, heart attack, heart failure, deep-vein thrombosis, rheumatic heart disease, etc.
It is critical to treat these cardiac diseases with the right medical treatment, psychosocial health, and most importantly lifestyle changes that include exercise training and physical activity to avoid them becoming progressive. If left untreated, cardiac diseases have a potential of proving fatal.
Physiotherapy, also referred to as cardiac rehabilitation, has proved to be a fundamental and critical intervention in not only the management but also the prevention of cardiac diseases. Some important benefits of cardiac physiotherapy include:
Leading a healthy lifestyle that includes an active exercise routine prevents the onset of cardiac diseases. It helps by lowering blood pressure, reducing cholesterol, and promoting healthy heart habits.
In the eventuality of a cardiac problem, physiotherapy helps in various stages of cardiac health management. These include:
Cardiovascular problem is serious and while it is critical to undergo a physiotherapy treatment, it is even more important to consult your doctor and a trained physiotherapist before you begin any kind of exercise regime. This is imperative for this routine to alleviate the symptoms and progression of the disease instead of causing any risk to the patient.
Physiotherapists play a critical role in cardiac rehabilitation in helping a patient return to her/his optimum heart health. The therapist that you choose to work with should be trained, professional, and experienced.
Mother & Baby Care
I had a serious L4 & L5 disc prolapse when I sought Portea’s physiotherapy. Thanks a lot to Dr. Amitava and Portea for their prompt service. Keep up the good work.
I am very happy to share my feedback regarding the excellent treatment I got. My Physiotherapist Dr. Babita Gurung was extremely helpful in getting back to me normal. She was very clear in her instructions and guides me well for each and every treatment she gives. She was absolutely wonderful and very active while discussing the problem and it’s remedy. She gives full attention and time to the patient and never in hurry to attend more patients by bypassing the under-treatment patients. Worth recommending to friends. Thank you all so much for your excellent care. I am feeling so much better now than when I started my PT. Your professionalism, concern and friendliness were much appreciated.
I think it was the most professional yet personal therapy I have had so far in the last 3 years since I first had the back problems. Dr. Fateh is a polite, good-natured and compassionate gentleman, who is extremely competent at his work and displayed great consistency throughout the sessions, even towards the end without slacking away time or hurrying up through the final sessions like most other Physiotherapists, as I have experienced before. He in fact ensured that he put a little more extra efforts towards the end to ensure that my back remains strong post the sessions.
