Cardiac & Lung Disease
Chronic lung disease and cardiac conditions have become prevalent in our aging population and represent one of the leading causes of hospitalization. Exercise prescription, physical activity, and lifestyle modifications are essential components of managing cardiorespiratory conditions. Physiotherapy can help you manage your symptoms and improve your quality of life.
Physiotherapy can help by
Educating you on energy conservation techniques to minimize symptoms of fatigue and shortness of breath
Providing you with the resources to make lifestyle changes necessary to achieve your optimal recovery and reduce exacerbations
Develop a progressive exercise program to increase your muscular strength and cardiorespiratory capacity
Providing a forum where exercise training can be performed under expert supervision so you can resume physical activity with confidence and guidance
