Cardiovascular and Pulmonary Rehabilitation

The ‘Put a Spring In your Step’ (SIS) Wellness Program is a 12 week rehabilitation program focused on Cardiovascular and Pulmonary Wellness.

  • Cardiovascular Wellness Group - available to patients with Angina, Hypertension, Heart Failure, Ischemic Heart Disease and other cardiovascular risk factors.
  • Pulmonary Wellness Group - available to patients with COPD and/or Asthma or any other chronic pulmonary conditions.

This program will give you tools, tips and advice that will help you manage your chronic condition. You will get a better understanding of how your condition affects your body and mind and how diet, exercising and catching up with friends, family, or doing activities you love helps to improve your quality of life.

Evidence shows cardiovascular and pulmonary rehabilitation is one of the most effective interventions to improve function, reduce symptoms, disability and hospitalisation for people with a chronic cardiovascular or pulmonary condition (Heart Foundation and Lung Foundation).
