Heart Fit Clinic has released External Counterpulsation to treat people with stress and heart disease
Calgary, AB (PRWEB) June 30, 2015
Oil is remaining at its lows and this economic uncertainty is a breeding ground for stress and heart disease. The Heart Fit Clinic has released External Counterpulsation (EECP/ECP) to treat people with stress and heart disease. This treatment is new to Calgary and the Heart Fit Clinic are excited to help people of Calgary and surrounding areas.
The majority of heart attacks occur with blockages that are less than 70% blocked. Therefore, the culprit is inflammation and minimal blockages in arteries that are less than 70% can inflame like a pimple on our face. One of the major causes of inflammation in the coronary arteries is stress.
Stress is a hidden risk factor to heart disease especially when it comes to our working population in Calgary. Many of these people are facing uncertainty in their jobs; however, there are some key ways to prevent a fatal heart attack, heart stent or bypass, and the Heart Fit Clinic has External Counterpulsation Therapy to service the Calgary area.
The Heart Fit Clinic provides a great External Counterpulsation Therapy program that includes heart assessments that the people of Calgary will not find at their family doctors office. Family doctors are great at determining patients who have high blood pressure or diabetes; however, patients can still be on the path of a heart attack or stroke. Family doctors can even refer patients to a cardiologist, obtain a clean bill of health yet still be on the path of a heart attack or stroke. How is that possible? Cardiologists are more likely to perform non-invasive cardiac diagnostic test that will only show advanced stages of the disease such as an exercise stress test, which has been performed for over 50 years.
For people with heart disease and stress they may feel episodes of angina that conventional medicine would treat with heart medication, stent or bypass. Now there is another option with External Counterpulsation therapy. This External Counterpulsation therapy is a great treatment for patient's who are not amenable to a heart stent or bypass surgery, have small or multi-vessel disease or a blocked heart stent or bypass.
The Heart Fit Clinic bridges a key gap in the healthcare system. If a patient has inflammation, has heart disease or at risk they can provide aggressive lifestyle treatment options, that includes External Coutnerpulsation, to prevent a fatal heart attack or stroke.
