Pulmonary Rehabilitation

It is not uncommon for patients with chronic pulmonary problems to fall into a cycle of inactivity, depression, and social isolation. Unfortunately this pattern can lead to other health concerns. The New Heart Pulmonary Rehabilitation program aims to break this cycle and give support, guidance, and pulmonary education.

The New Heart Center for Fitness and Health offers a comprehensive, customized pulmonary rehabilitation program. Our program provides a safe, healing place for individuals with chronic pulmonary problems to help increase their quality of life.

The individualized program provides a supportive combination of exercise, nutrition, and caring pulmonary health specialists. Oxygen will be provided with the program.
