Pulmonary Rehabilitation

We know that exercise can help people with lung conditions.  There is research showing that when you complete a structured exercise programme (with an education component) of:

  • at least 6 weeks in duration
  • at least 12 supervised sessions
  • supervised, individually tailored and prescribed, progressive exercise training including both aerobic and resistance training

You get

  • Improvements in exercise capacity
  • Improvements in shortness of breath
  • Improvements in physical activity
  • Improvement in your daily activities
  • Improvements in your psychological status

A 1:1 pulmonary rehabilitation programme with me will ensure you are exercising correctly and completing a programme that is tailored for you.

It will consist of an exercise component and an education component.

The exercise component will be a combination of aerobic exercises and strength training.

The education component will be individualised to you, but can consist of discussions surrounding:

  • Diagnosis understanding of your respiratory disease
  • Shortness of breath and fatigue management
  • Understanding your medications and reviewing your inhaler technique
  • Airway Clearance
  • Nutrition guidance
  • Relaxation and anxiety management
  • Managing an exacerbation
