EXERCISE YOUR RIGHT TO BREATH
Pulmonary rehabilitation helps people diagnosed with asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (emphysema, bronchitis), patients requiring a lung transplant, and other pulmonary conditions. The program combines exercise, education and breath training to help people achieve and maintain their maximum level of independence and living. The goal of the program is for a person with lung disease to be able to do daily activities with less shortness of breath. Kelly Mathison, Respiratory Therapist, will customize a program for each individual.
