Benefits of pulmonary rehabilitation

Pulmonary rehabilitation can’t cure lung disease, but it can be of great benefit to your daily life in managing lung disease. It allows you to make the most of limited lung disease functions. Benefits include:

  • Improved breathing
  • Decrease of symptoms from your condition or disease
  • Increased ability to exercise

What can I expect?

Through exercise and educational classes, Pulmonary Rehabilitation can help you participate in activities with less shortness of breath, as well as teach you how to better manage your condition.

  • Monitored and supervised exercise: Exercise will help improve your endurance and muscle strength, so you're better able to carry out daily activities.
  • Education classes (include but not limited to): Medications, using an inhaler, self-care techniques, understanding and using oxygen therapy, nutrition and weight management.
