Pulmonary rehabilitation is a restorative and preventive process for patients with chronic respiratory disease. Patients experiencing conditions such as shortness of breath, emphysema, asthma, or pulmonary disease can achieve a healthier, more active life through exercise.
Pulmonary rehabilitation combines both education and exercise sessions, offered by board-certified pulmonary physicians and health care professionals specializing in pulmonary treatment and rehabilitation, to enhance patients' quality of living. State-of-the-art diagnostic testing, outpatient pulmonary function testing, and treatment and rehabilitation for a variety of breathing problems are available. Our programs are individually prescribed to help patients increase mobility, improve stamina, and reduce breathing anxiety.
