Physical Fitness Possible with Lung Conditions


Los Angeles, CA -- (SBWIRE) -- 02/14/2014 -- In the past it had been common for those with lung conditions to abstain from physical activity, but recent medical research has given a green light to persons of any condition to engage in physical activity that is right for their health levels.

Regular exercise has been shown to be beneficial to those suffering from lung disease, and can actually assist in improving quality of life by making breathing an easier task and reducing the risk of other health conditions. Asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, 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 or improve or change overall function, it can improve the ability to perform everyday activities by increasing endurance and reducing shortness of breath. In addition to this, outpatient pulmonary rehabilitation programs can teach patients how to monitor their conditions and assist in finding an exercise program that can help them maintain or improve their current fitness levels.

With proper training and awareness of a condition, many with lung conditions find that there are many activities they can enjoy despite their illness. Numerous Olympic athletes compete with asthma conditions, and with advances in medicine and more knowledge on how to manage and treat these conditions those with disease are living longer and fuller lives. Regular exercise can assist a person in getting the most out of their life through increasing stamina, improving overall health, and improving confidence levels by teaching that we don’t need to let diseases slow us down.
