Choosing the Right Direction for Managing Heart Disease
Consider Your Options
When it comes to your health always consider your options. Understand what treatments are available. Together with your physician, assess what is the best option for you.
Surgery is not the only treatment for cardiac patients. While helpful and appropriate for many, bypass surgery and angioplasty often fail to provide adequate long-term relief from angina. These invasive procedures can involve pain and greater risk of serious side effects. It may be time to consider a new direction for managing heart disease.
Patients suffering from heart disease, particularly chronic stable angina and Congestive Heart Failure (CHF). should consider External Counterpulsation (ECP) Therapy.
Many physicians offer ECP Therapy in outpatient clinics. ECP is a low-risk procedure with little to no side effects. ECP Therapy consists of 35 daily treatments, each treatment is one-hour per day.
Relief Without Surgery
ECP is safe, effective, and best of all it does not include the risk of complications of surgery. ECP is a noninvasive procedure which means no hospitalization, no anesthesia, no surgery, and no pain.
ECP is an excellent choice for many people who have already had, or are not well suited for bypass surgery or angioplasty.
Now you can have relief without surgery with help from External Counterpulsation Therapy! ECP is an FDA cleared treatment for angina and Heart Failure.
After years of testing and development, ECP has provided to be an exciting option for many cardiac patients. ECP is a widely accepted treatment option that should be seriously considered for managing your heart disease.
