Do you have angina? EECP may help.
We also offer state-of-the-art treatment for angina. If medications no longer relieve your angina symptoms; you have had open-heart (bypass) surgery; have a balloon angioplasty or stent, and your symptoms have returned; if you have chosen not to have any more invasive procedures: you may be a good candidate for EECP therapy. EECP therapy is a safe and effective outpatient therapeutic alternative to invasive procedures and it may help alleviate painful angina episodes. It uses large blood-pressure-type cuffs which wrap around the legs and buttocks and gently apply pressure to improve circulation from the lower part of your body back to your heart. To learn more, call (315) 261-5985 and ask to speak with one of our EECP therapists.
