PULMONARY REHABILITATION

Dealing with the everyday effects of poor breathing is challenging. Pulmonary Rehab is a proven outpatient program for people living with chronic lung diseases. Whether you’re dealing with COPD, bronchitis, emphysema, asthma, pulmonary fibrosis, lung cancer, or interstitial lung disease, Pulmonary Rehab will give you the tools and knowledge needed to better manage your condition and live life more fully.

Our Pulmonary Rehab Program offers individualized and progressive treatment designed to optimize lung function and get you leading the life you want.

Your program begins with a comprehensive evaluation by the Pulmonary Rehab team. This physician-led team will develop a personalized education and exercise program that fits your tolerance and physical abilities.

Spanning eight weeks, your program will be a combination of education and exercise. Workouts are always conducted under the watchful and compassionate eye of a team of physical and respiratory therapists. The goal is to reduce any shortness of breath, improve oxygen levels, increase energy and endurance, decrease extremity pain, manage your weight, and help you maintain long-term independence.
