What is the Breathe Easy Program?

The Doveston Body Concepts Health Clinic understands that Pulmonary Rehabilitation can dramatically improve a person’s quality of life however we understand that a very clinical, hospital setting can be quite confronting and a patients compliance may often waiver. Our Breathe Easy Program offers a non-intimidating flexible framework for patients who require Pulmonary Rehabilitation and are looking to begin exercising and/or continuing to maintain safe appropriate exercise under supervision.

The Breathe Easy Program offers a complete treatment for various lung diseases including but not limited to the following:

  • Asthma
  • Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD)
  • Emphysema
  • Cystic Fibrosis
  • Bronchitis

Normally people suffering from these respiratory conditions present with increased levels of breathlessness and usually a decreased ability to perform the activities of daily life e.g. walking, cooking, cleaning etc. Regular pulmonary rehabilitation courses although providing a social setting for patients are not always individually tailored to meet desired outcomes and can sometimes apply a one size fits all approach.

Our Breathe Easy program has shown time and time again to assist patients to not only improve their breathlessness but to also improve their quality of life and reduce hospitalisations. After completing our program most patients find that they can resume activities that they had previously given up including walking the dog, riding their bike, swimming, playing with the kids, gardening etc.

What benefits can patients completing the Breathe Easy Program expect to see?

  • Reduced breathlessness
  • Increased physical fitness and improved function
  • Improved quality of life
  • Mood improvement
  • Increased motivation levels
  • Increased knowledge of individual condition/s
  • Increased participation in active daily livings (ADL’s)
  • Reduced hospitalisations or reduced length of stay when admitted
