Pulmonary Rehabilitation in Bakersfield

Helping you manage the symptoms of your pulmonary condition

Pulmonary rehabilitation is a program that combines education and exercise classes to teach you about your lungs, like how to exercise and do activities with less shortness of breath and how to live better with your lung condition. By investing in pulmonary rehabilitation, you can rebuild lung strength and enjoy a full and active life.

Education and exercise remain key elements in the success of treating people with pulmonary problems. At Adventist Health Bakersfield, we also prepare people for heart and lung transplants, as well as lung reduction surgery.
