When does rehab start?

For heart patients, usually 2 to 4 weeks after you are discharged from the hospital. For vascular patients, it may start at the time of diagnosis.


Studies have shown that patients who attend rehab have improved quality of life, increased walking and exercise capacity, reduced leg pain while walking, better mood and significantly lower risk of future complications.
