Studies have proven that persons with chronic lung disease who complete a pulmonary rehabilitation program experience a decrease in pulmonary symptoms, hospital and emergency room visits and lead a more active lifestyle.
Pulmonary rehabilitation is designed to address the difficult challenges facing individuals including shortness of breath, decreased strength and endurance, reduced energy levels, reduced self-esteem and ability to care for oneself. These challenges can often lead to fear, anxiety, depression and isolation.
Exercise is an essential part of pulmonary rehabilitation. During the program, you will participate in physical reconditioning exercises to improve your stamina so that you can pursue the activities you enjoy.
Continuing a regular exercise routine is key to maintaining good pulmonary health. Upon completion of the pulmonary rehabilitation, each participant is encouraged to maintain their exercise programs and lung health. You and your primary care physician will receive specific recommendations for you to continue self-care.
