Heart disease is a serious medical condition that occurs when the blood vessels leading to the heart become blocked. This obstruction causes the heart to get less blood than normal. The lack of blood flow in the heart can potentially lead to a heart attack, a stroke or severe chest pains. These problems are only going to get worse over time if you do not seek proper treatment. If you are looking for a safe and effective method of managing heart disease, consider ECP therapy.
ECP therapy is gaining in popularity as a way of managing heart disease. This is due in part to the amazing results it can produce. It is designed to reduce your heart disease symptoms by creating small collateral blood vessels. Since there will be a new path to the heart, your blood will be able to avoid the blocked blood vessels. This will increase the flow of oxygenated blood to the heart, which should make it much easier to manage your heart disease. You will be able to take less medication and perform physical activities without getting exhausted after your ECP therapy. You should also experience fewer pains in the chest.
Cuffs will be placed on your thighs, calves and buttocks at the beginning of your ECP therapy session. Air is pumped into the cuffs to cut off the blood flow in your lower body. Since your lower body is getting less blood, this will increase the blood flow back to your heart. The ECP therapy machine is able to time these air compressions at the exact time your heart is resting. The cuffs are instantly deflated right before your heart starts to beat again. The entire session is designed to get more blood flow to the heart while also making it easier for your heart to work properly.
The entire ECP therapy session will last for one hour. In order for the treatment to be effective, you have to undergo an ECP therapy session every business day for seven straight weeks. This may seem like a big commitment, but it can drastically change your life.
While the results of ECP therapy are remarkable when it comes to managing heart disease, it will take some time before you start feeling better. Most patients start to see a reduction in their heart disease symptoms after three or four weeks of ECP therapy sessions. Your condition will only continue to improve as you near the end of your seven-week treatment.
