Cardiovascular Rehab

If it is time for cardiac intervention

We can help you get back to the life you love

You may come to us following proactive intervention, like an angiogram, angioplasty, or open heart surgery. Or, you may be referred to us following a health event, like a heart attack, otherwise called a myocardial infarction. Both require dedicated, individualized intervention from our interdisciplinary rehabilitation team who are among the area’s very best specialists. However you come to us, we can help you recover before returning home or to the next level of care.

At either our Bellevue or Renton location, you will be paired with a therapist who works with you one on one to manage your recovery program. Our specially-trained cardiopulmonary rehabilitation team partners with your doctor, combining innovative, proven technologies with customized clinical programs, including training and support by licensed physical and occupational therapists.

This approach incorporates therapeutic exercise to help improve muscle strength and aerobic capacity.  It is then combined with rehab technologies such as electrotherapy to help increase circulation and neuromuscular function which improves patient outcomes and quality of life. Whether patient or physician, we partner with you to provide exceptional rehabilitation care.

Do you know if it’s time to consider cardiovascular intervention?

If so, we’ll help you recover

Heart disease is the number one cause of death in American men and women*, and half of the men who die suddenly of coronary heart disease have no previous symptoms.** Especially over age 50, even if you have no symptoms, you may still be at risk for heart disease.

That’s why, in matters of the heart and vascular system, time lost is muscle and tissue lost.  We encourage you to know your warning signs of heart and vascular disease. If you address these warning signs early, you can recover and return to the life you love.

Symptoms to never ignore for your heart and vascular system, include:

  • Bigger waistline, bigger risk: Carrying even 20 extra pounds makes your heart have to work harder to support your body’s needs. Know your weight and your body mass index, BMI.
  • Using tobacco: According to the CDC, tobacco use triples the risk of death from heart disease for men and women over 50. There are several programs, often free, that help you quit tobacco for good.
  • Do you know your numbers? It can save your life to know whether your heart and vascular system are operating within proper ranges. This makes a world of difference to your heart and vascular health.  Here are the numbers you should know:
