Pulmonary Rehabilitation

Rehab is a team approach to improving the health of people with chronic pulmonary disease, which combines exercise with educational programs to help improve day-to-day activities and improve quality of life. People diagnosed with COPD such as emphysema, asthma and chronic bronchitis benefit most from pulmonary rehabilitation.

Benefits:

  • Enhanced ability to perform activities of daily living
  • Reduced occurrence of respiratory symptoms
  • Improved feelings of control over COPD with less anxiety and depression
  • Reduced frequency of hospitalizations
  • Increased knowledge of your disease and how to manage it
