Pulmonary Rehabilitation

Pulmonary rehabilitation works to improve the quality of life for patients who have chronic lung disease. Living with a disease that makes breathing difficult and limits what you can do on a daily basis is frustrating; through the training and lifestyle modifications found in pulmonary rehabilitation program, patients can make life more active, fulfilling, and satisfying. It should be noted, however, that the highly individualized programs are not a cure.
