      Pulmonary Rehab

      Pulmonary Rehabilitation has been developed to assist people suffering from chronic lung disease, breathing dysfunction and in recovering from respiratory illnesses.

      Featured Services

      Our program at Thoracare Subiaco is designed to increase exercise tolerance, strength and overall quality of life. Any level of fitness is welcome and will be able to participate. We place a strong focus on correcting breathing patterns and assisting in strategies for managing shortness of breath.

      You will have a comprehensive initial assessment from an experienced physiotherapist, and from there are welcome to join our group classes which currently run twice a week. Some people may require one on one sessions for further treatment before they are appropriate for the classes, which will be discussed with you by your physiotherapist.

      • Pulmonary Rehab Classes

        We will create an individual program tailored to your ability and experience with exercise. Our gym environment is ideal for building confidence, and you will be supervised throughout the class so we can progress exercises safely at your own pace.

      • Exercise information

        Research has shown that the right kind of exercise is good for people with chronic lung conditions, even if it makes you feel breathless. Many people with lung problems avoid exercise due to the uncomfortable feeling of breathlessness.

      • Breathlessness information

        Breathlessness or “dyspnoea” is the feeling of being out of breath. This can mean that your breathing feels too hard, too fast or just uncomfortable. Patients often describe the sensation in phrases such as “can’t catch my breath” or simply feeling as if they are “suffocating”.
