Pulmonary Rehabilitation is an 8 week program that brings people who have chronic lung conditions together once a week to enjoy exercise in a group setting. It also includes education sessions to help you understand your lung condition and better manage your health and wellbeing.
Why would I attend Pulmonary Rehabilitation?
- If you have a long term lung illness, for example Asthma or Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD).
- To gain information about your lung condition and how to best manage this over time.
- To improve your quality of life and improve symptoms such as shortness of breath and fatigue.
- To be assisted with the use of spacers and inhalers for the management of your lung condition.
