Building Stronger Hearts Through Cardiac Rehab with Christine Alongi

When most people think of post-surgery rehab, they commonly think of knee, hip or shoulder repair — the type of surgeries that require weeks or months of rehabilitation to regain full function. But orthopedic surgeries aren’t the only surgeries that require rehab — cardiac rehab is every bit as essential following a heart surgery. Which is why we built the Strong Hearts Intensive Cardiac Rehabilitation Center where participants are offered a personalized program focused on exercise, eating behaviors, food preparation, understanding medications and stress management. We’re here with Christine Alongi, the center’s director, to learn more about the great services Strong Hearts Rehab provides.
