More than 35 million adults in the US live with lung disease. This includes COPD (Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease), Emphysema and Chronic Bronchitis, and other lung diseases such as Pulmonary Hypertension, Bronchiectasis, Cystic Fibrosis, Asthma and Interstitial Lung Disease (Pulmonary Fibrosis) and now Covid-19. The common denominator in all these diseases is that is published medical research states that the benefits of pulmonary rehabilitation are more effective than other therapies such as drugs (inhalers, steroids), and results in a better quality of life for those living with lung disease. It has been shown that Pulmonary Rehab reduces the chance of hospitalizations and improves endurance and overall longevity.
