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 physiology specialist.
Our program focuses on improving cardiovascular endurance, body strength and flexibility in patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), lung cancer, asthma, pulmonary fibrosis and other respiratory conditions. Six-minute walking tests are held every three months to assess each patient’s progress. If needed, our exercise physiology expert provides supplemental oxygen with regular monitoring of pulse oximetry.
The Pulmonary Exercise Program has a fee that is not covered by insurance.
