Pulmonary rehabilitation is a program of education and exercise classes that teach you about your disease, how to exercise and how to be more active with less shortness of breath.
Pulmonary rehab offers substantial benefits in improving lung function, reducing symptoms and improving quality of life for people with lung disease like PF.
