About Us

In 2023, Department of Physiotherapy, Faculty of Health Sciences, Universitas Muhammadiyah Surakarta is proud to host an international virtual symposium and call for paper called the Academic Physiotherapy Conferences 2023 (APC 2023). We hope such work will be an essential mechanism for the innovation of research. This symposium should provide a forum for graduate students, teachers, and physical therapist to disseminate the information obtained from research and to create a further national and international research network in the field of physical therapy.

The Rules of Physical Therapy for Cardiac Rehabilitation in Community Settings

Over time, physical activity in reference to heart disease is far from being new. Despite some evidence of these particular physical activity benefits, mobility restriction was imposed on patients with acute cardiac events, often leading to serious deconditioning problems, decline in functional capacity, prolonged hospitalization, and increased mortality. Guidelines for CR were first established by the American College of Sports Medicine and the American Heart Association. Rehabilitation and secondary prevention gained broad support as an essential component of comprehensive care in patients with cardiovascular disease (CVD). Cardiac rehabilitation is defined as a secondary prevention model that reduces mortality and the risk of recurrent events and improves CVD patients' quality of life (QoL). A cardiac rehabilitation program is primarily based on the favorable effects of physical exercise (exercise-based cardiac rehabilitation), but comprehensive programs also include educational sessions focusing on risk factors, lifestyle and its modification.
