MWMC’s outpatient pulmonary rehabilitation program is a service that coordinates education and exercise to treat patients who have been diagnosed with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). This includes chronic bronchitis, asthma, and emphysema. One of our physical therapists will assess each patient’s abilities and provide education for making adaptations.
This program includes:
- Walking or exercise training
- Breathing techniques
- Energy conservation
- Work simplification/positioning
- Relaxation exercises
