Understanding Cardiovascular Health:

Heart disease remains a leading cause of mortality in Malaysia, emphasizing the urgent need for proactive measures. Physiotherapy interventions, coupled with regular exercise, target risk factors like hypertension, high cholesterol, and obesity, mitigating the onset and progression of cardiovascular issues.

The Role of Physiotherapy:

Physiotherapist at LifeCare PhysioFit are integral members of the healthcare team, specializing in cardiac rehabilitation and prevention. Through personalized exercise programs and holistic approaches, they address muscle weakness, enhance endurance, and improve overall cardiovascular function.

Benefits of Physiotherapy in Heart Health:

Rehabilitation after Cardiac Events:

LifeCare PhysioFit provides specialized rehabilitation programs to aid in recovering strength and mobility post-heart attack or cardiac surgery, facilitating a faster return to daily activities.

Risk Factor Management:

Physiotherapists educate patients on lifestyle modifications, including diet and exercise, to control blood pressure, cholesterol levels, and weight, reducing the risk of future cardiac events.

Individulized Exercise Prescription:

Tailored exercise regimens designed by LifeCare PhysioFit improve heart function, circulation, and oxygen utilization, promoting long-term heart health.

Comprehensive Exercise Routine for Heart Health:

LifeCare PhysioFit recommends a comprehensive exercise routine comprising various activities:

Aerobic Exercises:

Aim for at least 30 minutes of brisk walking most days of the week. Gradually increase the pace to elevate your heart rate.

Ride a bicycle outdoors or use a stationary bike for 20-30 minutes, aiming for moderate intensity.

Engage in swimming sessions for 20-30 minutes, utilizing different strokes to work various muscle groups while maintaining a steady pace.

Strength Training:

Perform 2-3 sets of 10-15 repetitions, gradually increasing the intensity by adding resistance.

Start with modified push-ups if needed, aiming for 2-3 sets of 8-12 repetitions to strengthen chest and arm muscles.

Use light to moderate dumbbells and perform 2-3 sets of 10-12 repetitions to target the back muscles.

Flexibility and Stretching:

Sit on the floor with one leg extended and the other bent. Lean forward, reaching towards your toes, and hold for 20-30 seconds on each side.

 Extend one arm across your chest, gently pulling it with the opposite hand, and hold for 20-30 seconds. Repeat on the other side.

Stand upright, grabbing one ankle and gently pulling it towards your buttocks while maintaining balance. Hold for 20-30 seconds and switch sides.

Interval Training:

Alternate between 30-60 seconds of high-intensity exercises (e.g., jumping jacks, burpees) and 30-60 seconds of rest or low-intensity exercises (e.g., walking in place, marching) for 15-20 minutes.
