Rehabilitation and aftercare

Components of COPD rehab

Drug treatment is revised and optimised during pneumological COPD rehabilitation. Further building blocks:
  • Quitting smoking
  • Physical training (lung sports)
  • Patient training
  • Breathing/physiotherapy
  • Occupational therapy
  • Nutrition counselling
  • Supplies of aids and adaptations
  • Social care
  • If necessary, assistance by psychologists

Positive effects of rehab treatment are ensured: You benefit by being able to increase your physical performance. The shortness of breath decreases and your quality of life increases. The number and duration of subsequent hospital stays can be reduced, existing anxiety disorders and depression improve. It is important that, following inpatient COPD rehabilitation, you permanently carry out further measures in your local area, such as at an outpatient lung sports group.
