Cardiovascular disease is a surprisingly common health problem in Canada. Each year, around 168,000 Canadian adults are diagnosed with some sort of heart disease.
In many cases, aerobic exercise is part of their treatment plan. But it needs to be the right kind for them and has to be introduced into their daily routine carefully.
Our therapists will create a custom treatment plan that combines a variety of therapies to help you to regain some of your heart health and slow the progression of the disease. Thus, enabling you to maximize your fitness levels and live as normal a life as possible.
The right kind of regular aerobic exercise strengthens the heart muscle. The fact that your heart is stronger means that it does not have to pump so fast to move the blood around your body. This reduces the workload on the heart and can lower your blood pressure. The symptoms of angina may even be alleviated when you follow an exercise regime that is tailored to your body's needs and capabilities.
Regular exercise improves muscle function throughout the body. Your muscles become better able to utilize the oxygen you are taking on. That, in turn, means that the heart does not have to work so hard to keep up with your body's needs. As you can see, for people with cardiovascular disease physiotherapy can be extremely beneficial.
For many people, regular physiotherapy care brings many benefits. Here are just a few examples of how it can be used to improve your fitness levels, health, and well-being:
- To aid recovery after any kind of injury
- Reduce even eliminate pain
- Help someone to significantly delay or completely avoid surgery

- Aid recovery after a stroke

- Strengthen the body in a way that makes further injuries less likely
