Pulmonary Medicine & Rehabilitation
If everyday physical exercise and activities make it hard to breathe, our Outpatient Pulmonary Rehabilitation Program may be right for you. We help people with chronic respiratory system impairments return to physical activities of daily living and their daily routine.
Program Benefits Include:
- Enhanced quality of life
- Reduced number of hospitalizations
- Decreased respiratory symptoms and complications
- Improved physical activity and conditioning
- Improved ability to manage disease and control function
- Improved emotional well-being
Comprehensive Treatment Plan
We work with you to design a comprehensive pulmonary treatment and rehab program that meets your needs. Participants meet in a small group setting, which gives our licensed physical therapists and respiratory therapists the opportunity to work individually with you in designing pulmonary conditioning activities and physical exercises to increase your physical capabilities and help you become more functionally independent. Based on your needs, we offer:
- Medical management
- Physical conditioning
- Respiratory therapy, physical therapy, occupational therapy and nutritional counseling
A Collaborative Approach
Led by a pulmonologist medical director, the Outpatient Pulmonary Rehabilitation Program staff at New England Sinai works together as a team. You will be evaluated and treated by a group of dedicated health care professionals, including a pulmonologist (a physician who cares for people with pulmonary/respiratory conditions), respiratory therapist, and physical therapist.
