Pulmonary Rehabilitation

Our pulmonary rehabilitation exercise and education program is designed to improve and maintain your overall fitness and help you live a more active life. Your SMHC team will design a program that helps you increase physical fitness and develop an understanding of your oxygen needs at rest and while active. Creating an understanding of chronic lung disease management is a key component of this program. By improving your strength through exercise, everyday activities become a little easier to do. Exercise will also help you to become less short of breath. When you are not as short of breath, your quality of life improves. Individuals who have taken advantage of our Pulmonary Rehabilitation Program are living with a variety of conditions, including:

  • COPD
  • Pulmonary fibrosis
  • Persistent asthma
  • Lung surgery
  • Sarcoidosis
  • Lung cancer
  • Cystic fibrosis
  • Interstitial lung disease

The program is available in both Biddeford and Sanford, for more information, please call (207) 283-7789.
