For patients who have completed pulmonary rehabilitation, maintaining physical fitness gains can sometimes prove challenging. That’s why Atlantic Rehabilitation offers a pulmonary exercise program that allows those with breathing disorders to continue their workout regimen under the supervision of an exercise physiologist.
Our program focuses on improving cardiovascular endurance, body strength and flexibility for patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), lung cancer, asthma, bronchitis and other respiratory conditions. Six-minute walking tests are held every three months to assess each patient’s progress. If needed, supplemental oxygen is provided with regular monitoring of pulse oximetry by our exercise physiologist.
The Pulmonary Exercise Program has a fee that is not covered by insurance. Services are available at Newton Medical Center and Atlantic Rehabilitation – Morristown.
