Pulmonary rehabilitation


Why Pulmonary Rehabilitation?

When you have a lung problem, particularly a long term one you may find it increasingly difficult to move around and perform your usual daily activities without getting breathless.

Breathlessness can be a very frightening experience and the anxiety it causes can often increase your shortness of breath further.

Pulmonary Rehabilitation is designed to help you cope with your breathlessness and feel stronger and fitter.
 

What are the aims?

  • To reduce sensation of breathlessness 
  • Increase muscle strength and mobility 
  • Reduce anxiety and depression 
  • Increase confidence 
  • Give you and your carer a clear understanding of managing your illness
     

What can you expect?

  • An individual assessment to assess you and your needs 
  • An individualised physical exercise programme 
  • Education and advice on lung health and coping with day to day issues 
  • A friendly, supportive atmosphere
