Pulmonary rehabilitation is a medically monitored exercise program to strengthen muscles and increase endurance and quality of life. It provides education and support to help people understand, manage and cope with lung disease. **The Christiane Gottman Pulmonary Rehabilitation Program follows the guidelines set up by the American Association of Cardio-Vascular and Pulmonary Rehabilitation (AACVPR).
If you are interested in the pulmonary rehabilitation program, you will need to speak with your doctor. If your doctor agrees this program would benefit you, he/she will send us a medical order for you to participate. Once we receive the doctor's order, we will contact you. Most Insurances provide coverage.
If you or someone you know has lung disease, please contact us. Don't let lung disease control you; you can control your disease!
