Pulmonary Therapy


The goal of Cottage’s pulmonary education program is to help you:

  • Understand the basic anatomy and function of your lungs
  • Learn how to breathe more easily
  • Understand your medical regime
  • Develop healthy eating habits
  • Learn ways to relax and control your breathing

Regular exercise can help you improve the efficiency of your lungs and improve your ability to perform the activities of daily living.


This program is for people who have emphysema, chronic bronchitis, persistent asthma, or other forms of restrictive lung disease. Our program is reimbursed by Medicare and most insurance companies.
