Exercise a must in Cardiac Rehab
I am called in to help patients in cardiac rehabilitation programs all the time. Why would a podiatrist be involved in cardiac rehab you might ask? Well, many of these heart attack survivors have never exercised in decades. There good and kind heart doctors send them to rehab and they begin to exercise. Imagine the frustration with the severe cases of plantar fasciitis or metatarsalgia that prohibit them from exercising. There lives depend on their ability to watch. So, in comes the podiatrist on his/her white horse!! Pretty cool eh!!
