Pulmonary rehabilitation is a support and education program for patients of all ages. The program addresses problems of chronic lung diseases, such as asthma, chronic bronchitis and emphysema. It also addresses restrictive diseases, such as fibrosis and black lung.
The program's goal is to assist the individual in achieving their fullest physical, emotional and social potential within the limitations of chronic lung disease. The patient and clinician work closely together to establish realistic short and long-term rehab goals.
Your individual needs and goals determine your pulmonary rehab program and set your education pace. Please contact a Pulmonary Rehabilitation Center near you to learn more about our multiple program styles.
