If you have COPD, pulmonary rehabilitation can help you. Pulmonary rehabilitation is a combination of education about COPD and gentle exercise. Participants in pulmonary rehabilitation have the following to say about it:

"I was individually assessed and helped to exercise at my own limit."
"I enjoyed being with other people in a similar situation."
"It helped me understand what was happening to me and how to properly use my medications."
To find out more about pulmonary rehabilitation, call The Australian Lung Foundation on 1 800 654 301

This 'Speaking From Experience' video clip offers first-hand experiences from people living with COPD. Participants discuss their experience of pulmonary rehabilitation.
