A patient's first visit is an assessment consisting of an in-depth review of current functional ability, medical history review, and a timed walk study. After the assessment, problem areas are identified, appropriate referrals are made, personal goals are established and an appointment is scheduled for the next available education class. An educational video will be loaned for viewing prior to the classroom session.

The second visit is a one-on-one orientation session. Patients will be instructed on stretching, warm-ups, and exercise equipment compatible to their current activity level. The heart will be monitored during these exercises; breathing retraining is coached throughout the program. Vital signs are checked before, during and after exercise. Sessions last approximately one hour and are available Monday through Friday. Please call 314-205-6849 for times.

Subsequent visits will include cardiac monitoring, obtaining vital signs, stretching, warm-ups, progressive exercise activity and strength training under close supervision. Breathing retraining is emphasized throughout the program. The program length is different for each patient as our program is specific to each individual. The average length of the program is 12 weeks.
