With a referral from your doctor, our pulmonary rehabilitation team designs the right program for your needs. We offer services such as exercise training, education and counseling, oxygen therapy and follow-up care, all designed to maximize your lung capacity, strength and control.
Our customized treatment plans include training to build lung endurance, reduce shortness of breath and calm anxiety. We also provide instruction on bronchial hygiene, as well as effective programs for smoking cessation.
