Pulmonary Rehabilitation

Newton-Wellesley Hospital offers pulmonary rehab at our 159 Wells Avenue clinic location in Newton. Patients with respiratory diagnoses such as Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD), pulmonary hypertension, interstitial lung disease, or restrictive lung disease are evaluated by a physical therapist who specializes in pulmonary rehab.

Patients will be evaluated and treated to optimize physical performance, improve quality of life, and reduce shortness of breath and stress. Patients will be seen twice weekly for approximately eight weeks. Patients should benefit from aerobic and strength exercise training, education for breathing mechanics, as well as pacing/energy conservation. Education will improve knowledge of the disease and help patients with self-management of their symptoms.

Patients may call the Rehabilitation Department for more information or to schedule an appointment at 617-243-6172
