Pulmonary Rehab is a monitored and supervised exercise program that combines education and exercise to improve overall lung function and decrease shortness of breath. A physical activity plan is tailored to your needs to help improve your endurance and muscle strength, so you are able to carry out daily activities. Our group of skilled healthcare professionals will focus on helping you to improve your quality of life.
 
Pulmonary Rehabilitation at LCH offers education classes that focus on COPD as well as other chronic lung disease to provide you with information about: 
  • Medications including side effects, using an inhaler and self-care techniques
  • Understanding and using oxygen therapy
  • Diet, nutrition and weight management
  • Breathing retraining
  • Importance of exercise
  • Strategies for managing breathing problems
  • Symptom assessment and knowledge about when to seek medical treatment 
We can provide up to 36 sessions over a period of several weeks. Pulmonary Rehab is offered on Tuesday and Thursday and typically lasts for about an hour. A physician referral is required to begin rehabilitation. To schedule appointments or have your physician send a referral, please call our staff at 731-221-2501 or fax information to 731-221-2178.
