Recent high-quality research supports the fact that pulmonary rehabilitation reduces breathlessness, increases exercise ability, such as walking, and improves your quality of life.
Meet the Experts
The respiratory physiotherapy service, run by Corrine Ward, takes place on Fridays at the Hospital of St John and St Elizabeth. Corrine has extensive specialist experience of respiratory conditions from intensive care, the acute setting and through to out-patients with 22 years' post graduate experience.
Central Health Physiotherapy offers an eight-week pulmonary rehabilitation course: physiotherapy to exercise your heart and circulation.
Through specific exercise and education we help you if you have chronic lung disease and experience increasing breathlessness and are not managing to do the things you once found easy.
For one hour, twice a week, the course includes: exercises to reduce symptoms and improve strength and endurance; teaches how to best manage your condition, maximise function and quality of life, the use of your inhaler, chest clearance techniques if you have problems with phlegm; methods of relaxation to save energy so that you can do the things you want, when you want.
