Rebuilding Your Heart Health
Your heart requires care and conditioning to perform at its best. Like other muscles, if it doesn't get what it needs, your heart can become weak and dysfunctional, causing new problems or worsening existing ones. So what do you do if you are not well enough to get the exercise your heart needs?
Trios Therapy Services helps improve cardiovascular health through medically supervised cardiac rehabilitation. Cardiac rehabilitation is a specialized, referral-based physical therapy service designed for people with heart conditions. It can be used either as a preventive measure or following a cardiac event or surgery.
Individualized Therapy Program
Your therapy team takes the time to get to know you and your unique health situation. We then design a productive therapy experience and an effective total care program just for you. Your individualized program helps you improve your cardiovascular health in a safe, clinical environment while under the careful monitoring and instruction of exercise specialists and advanced nurse educators.

The Trios Cardiac Rehabilitation program is designed to help anyone who needs to regain heart strength, including but not limited to those who:
