Pulmonary rehabilitation (PR) is a treatment programme made up of:
- a physical exercise programme, designed for people with lung conditions and tailored for you
- information on looking after your body and your lungs, and advice on managing your condition and your symptoms, including feeling short of breath
It’s designed for people diagnosed with a lung condition who are breathless. Your PR team will be made up of trained health care professionals such as physiotherapists, nurses and occupational therapists.
A course of PR usually lasts 6 to 8 weeks, with 2 sessions of about 2 hours each week. You’ll be in a group of about 8-16 people. PR courses are held in local hospitals, community halls, leisure centres and health centres.
