Pulmonary Rehabilitation

If you have chronic breathing issues that make it difficult to do everyday activities like walking up a flight of stairs or getting dressed, we can help. Pulmonary rehabilitation is a program that uses exercise and education to help people manage symptoms of their chronic lung conditions.

What is Pulmonary Rehab?

Pulmonary rehab is an outpatient program that benefits those who suffer from chronic respiratory diseases. Through exercise, education, and behavioral changes, pulmonary rehab is designed to improve the physical and psychological condition of people with chronic respiratory diseases  

Each exercise program is designed to meet your individual needs. We take into account your past medical history, risk factor profile, and current medical evaluation. Our multidisciplinary team will work with you to devise the best healthcare plan for you.  

Our primary goal is to return you to an optimum active lifestyle and our program is designed to recondition and improve cardiopulmonary function.  

Pulmonary Rehab provides:  

  • Monitored exercise
