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.

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 a premium package member ( patient name: Nikhat Begum)
I just wanted to thank the customer support team. Especially Partha Sarthy, he has been extremely helpful and prompt in solving my concerns. I am very happy about how he went out of his way to make things happen in a timely manner and followed up post-resolution.
To whom this letter of recommendation may concern.
I would like to share our very positive feedback concerning your business partner Vinay Venugopal.
He has been nothing but diligent and efficient in organising PCR tests for the whole family on behalf of Portea. And this several times being particularly proactive in paving the way through the registration and payment processes of the company, smoothing the way out for us right form the start until we received our results.
Kindly take this recommendation as a priority as Vinay Venugopal is certainly an added value to any company he would offer his services to.
Not to mention being able to communicate in English with him really took the stress off the whole medical process, which can certainly not be said for other laboratory partners.
This is one of the reasons we will carry on giving our business to Portea.
