Knowing the signs of heart attack is important, but just as important are understanding the risk factors for heart disease and making the lifestyle changes that can reduce those risks. That’s the focus of a recent Move Forward Radio episode that addresses¬†heart health issues and the role of a physical therapist.

In recognition of February as American Heart Month, Move Forward Radio talks with Pamela Bartlo, PT, DPT, CCS, who outlines the signs of a heart attack and risk behaviors for heart disease. She also describes the role of a PT in cardiac rehabilitation, and discusses how cardiac rehabilitation works best as a part of a lifestyle change for people who have heart issues.
