Physical Fitness Possible with Lung Conditions

Los Angeles, CA – 2/14/2014

In the past it had been common for those with lung conditions to abstainfrom physical activity, but recent medical research has given a green light to personsof any condition to engage in physical activity that is right for their healthlevels.

Regular exercise has been shown to be beneficial to those suffering fromlung disease, and can actually assist in improving quality of life by makingbreathing an easier task and reducing the risk of other health conditions.  Asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonarydisease, or restrictive lung disease are all conditions that require caution,but do not prevent one from pursuing physical activity to improve health.

While exercise will not heal the underlying cause of lung disease orimprove or change overall function, it can improve the ability to perform everydayactivities by increasing endurance and reducing shortness of breath.  In addition to this, outpatient pulmonaryrehabilitation programs can teach patients how to monitor their conditions andassist in finding an exercise program that can help them maintain or improvetheir current fitness levels.

With proper training and awareness of a condition, many with lungconditions find that there are many activities they can enjoy despite theirillness.  Numerous Olympic athletescompete with asthma conditions, and with advances in medicine and moreknowledge on how to manage and treat these conditions those with disease areliving longer and fuller lives.  Regularexercise can assist a person in getting the most out of their life throughincreasing stamina, improving overall health, and improving confidence levelsby teaching that we don’t need to let diseases slow us down.
