Cardiac Rehab

If you suffer from heart-related illness, cardiac rehabilitation can be a vital piece to your recovery using exercise and education. Total Health specializes in cardiac rehab. Each patient undergoes a thorough medical evaluation before a personalized, prescribed exercise plan is designed complete with education and counseling.
