Pulmonary Rehabilitation Programs
30% of Albertans live with Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD). As with any chronic disease, managing symptoms is an intricate balance of knowledge, medication management, lifestyle changes, emotional support and promotion of activity. Pulmonary Rehabilitation programs address all of these issues and have been shown to be one of the most effective ways to manage COPD. Breathe Well Physio is pleased to offer two levels of Pulmonary Rehabilitation programs, delivered by a Certified Respiratory Educator (respiratory therapist). In addition, we have a more advanced class for individuals with any chronic disease or mobility issues that need some motivation and coaching to keep going strong!
