Pulmonary Rehabilitation – Helping you live better, one breath at a time.
For a patient with moderate to severe pulmonary disease, pulmonary rehabilitation reduces and controls the symptoms and complications experienced by patients. We accomplish this through a program of exercise and education.
Eligibility is based on a diagnosis of moderate to severe pulmonary disease, the results of your pulmonary function test and whether or not you are a smoker or participating in a smoking cessation program.
Ask your physician for a referral; if he or she feels you are a candidate and you are motivated, we can help.
The Pulmonary Rehabilitation Program meets three times a week for twelve weeks on Monday, Wednesday, and Thursday afternoons. Each session lasts approximately 90 minutes.
