What is Pulmonary Rehabilitation?

Pulmonary rehabilitation is a program of learning and exercise that supports you manage your breathing problem, build up your stamina (energy), and reduce your breathlessness.

The program's learning part shows you to be “in charge” of your breathing instead of your breathing being in charge of you. You will grasp how to pace your breathing with your exercises, take your medications, and communicate with your healthcare provider.

Our skilled pulmonary rehabilitation staff administered the exercise sessions that formulates an exercise program just for you. The exercises commence at a level that you can handle (some individuals start exercising while sitting and others on a treadmill).

Based on your ability, the number of exercises will be increased in times, and also the level of difficulty will be modified. As your muscles get stronger, you will be able to exercise for a more extended period of time, and also you will experience reduced breathlessness.

What is the Procedure for Pulmonary Rehabilitation?

Your pulmonary rehabilitation program may include one or more of the following:

  • Breathing techniques. You may receive specific techniques such as yoga breathing, pursed-lip breathing, or breathing with the computer-aided assessment. With these approaches, you can better manage your breathing and avoid feeling out of breath, notably when you are physically active or under stress. You may likewise learn procedures to help clear mucus from your lungs.
  • Education. In group or individual discussions, your providers can deal with questions about your lung disease and extend guidance for how to take care of it. You may learn how the lungs work and useful measures to take your medicines. You may learn to observe the flare-up clues early and generate a plan to fend off or manage one. If you smoke, our team may be effective in helping you quit. You may learn how to preserve your energy and avoid feeling short of breath by finding more accessible alternatives to do everyday tasks. This may include actions to avoid reaching, lifting, and tilting, or ways to evade or relieve stress.
  • Psychological counseling. People who have persistent lung disease may also experience depression, anxiety, and other emotional issues. Individual or group care can provide guidance in stress management.
  • Exercise training. Exercise training aims to build up your arms, back, legs, and the muscles you adopt to breathe. Training can also stimulate you to build stamina and flexibility, making it smoother to do everyday tasks and appreciate things. Your healthcare team may suggest using medicine to clear your airways or adjusting your regular oxygen therapy during physical movement.
  • Nutritional counseling. Our team will tell you as to what food to eat and how to prepare meals to manage your medical condition, and how to feel best. Our nutritional counselors ensure that you are getting the appropriate nutrients in the proper amounts. A dietitian may suggest a weight-loss plan or dietary supplements or remedies help you develop muscle.

What takes place after You complete a Pulmonary Rehabilitation program?

After you have completed the Pulmonary Rehabilitation program, it’s imperative that you continue to exercise, or you will lose all of the benefits you have gained. Our staff will create a long-term plan of exercise for you. Our many programs offer a “maintenance” plan so that you have a support group and continue to exercise with others with breathing problems.
