Physiotherapy for pulmonary rehabilitation

What we do

Physiotherapy has a very important role in improving the quality of life and increasing activity in patients with chronic respiratory problems. The physiotherapist provides an assessment considering not only breathing problems but also the effect of other illnesses on their breathing and general wellbeing.

The patient will be given education and advice about management of any breathing problems and necessary lifestyle changes.

Our pulmonary rehabilitation programme involves attending a programme of exercise sessions and education sessions. The exercises are set at a level for each individual so that all abilities can attend

Where we are

Our pulmonary rehabilitation programme is delivered in a variety of community locations, for patients who are not suitable for group rehabilitation, individual rehabilitation programmes can be developed and delivered either in their own homes or at Scarborough Hospital.

The physiotherapist can also follow up patients in their own homes following discharge from hospital in order to ensure maximum benefit following their stay in hospital.

From Monday 15 June 2020, visitors and outpatients coming into our hospitals will be asked to wear a face covering at all times, to help us reduce the spread of Covid-19.  A face covering can be as simple as a scarf or bandana that ties behind the head.  It should cover your mouth and nose while allowing you to breathe comfortably.  For more information click here.
