Lung & Pulmonary

Our Lung & Pulmonary programs are customized specifically for each and every patient to help improve their quality of life, as well as help them build up endurance to perform physical activities for daily living.

Lung & Pulmonary

Anyone suffering from a diagnosed lung disease, particularly those living with Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) can benefit from our programs. Most lung diseases cause symptoms such as difficulty in breathing, coughing, airway obstruction and a heavy or tight feeling in the chest. Daily activities, like climbing the stairs or walking across a room, may become difficult.

Because lung disease can affect one's ability to participate in normal activities, appropriate diagnosis and treatment can improve quality of life. Pulmonary Function Testing can determine the extent of lung disease. A pulmonary physician oversees the treatment program.
