Pulmonary Rehabilitation

Pulmonary rehabilitation is a specified exercise program that helps to improve the overall health and well-being of patients that have chronic or acute breathing problems.  Outpatient pulmonary rehabilitation is for patients who are medically stable but need guidance and supervision on an exercise program that is appropriate for their condition.

What to Expect

Pulmonary rehabilitation is not intended to replace medical therapy, but to be used with medical therapy to teach:

– Breathing strategies
– Energy conservation techniques
– Education and management of your lung condition

Pulmonary rehabilitation seeks to improve a patient’s ability to function and to improve their quality of life.  The program may help with shortness of breath and may result in giving patients more stamina throughout their day. Pulmonary rehabilitation should be tailored to the patient via the physician and physical therapist depending on each patient’s needs.

Therapists

Thank you for your help in my recovery. Wade and Marla have certainly helped me with their therapy after the knee surgery and the broken arm. All of you have been extremely kind as you guided me through the various exercises that have re-energized the many muscles that have helped me walk and get close to normal again. Your smiles, encouragements, the family atmosphere has been very helpful throughout the process. It starts with the smile and welcome that Kayla gives each time I walk in the door. Thanks so much to each of you for your caring attitude.
