Breathe Easier, Live Better
Pulmonary rehabilitation is a program where we help patients with chronic
lung diseases improve their lung function, reduce the severity of their
disease's symptoms, and live a better life.
The Pulmonary Rehabilitation team will create a comprehensive treatment
plan to help you improve your lung capacity and abilities. The plan may
include dietary recommendations, exercise regimens, medical prescriptions, and more.
Pulmonary rehabilitation may include several of the following components:
- Breathing techniques and education
- Exercise training
- Use of oxygen and equipment
- Energy conservation techniques
- Psychological counseling
- Nutritional counseling
Who can benefit from Pulmonary Rehabilitation?
Pulmonary rehabilitation is recommended for patients suffering from COPD
and other types of chronic lung disease, such as asthma, chronic bronchitis,
restrictive lung disease, cystic fibrosis, and other lung issues. Lung
diseases are often debilitating, depending on the severity of its symptoms.
Fortunately, the symptom's effects can be lessened and managed to
an extent. This is achieved through diligent, consistent, and careful
training and therapy. Patients that follow the treatment program closely
are much more likely to improve their lungs' capabilities than those
who do not.

and lead a happier and more comfortable life.
