Pulmonary rehabilitation (PR) is a treatment programme made up of:

  • a physical exercise programme, designed for people with lung conditions and tailored for you
  • information on looking after your body and your lungs, and advice on managing your condition and your symptoms, including feeling short of breath

It’s designed for people diagnosed with a lung condition who are breathless. Your PR team will be made up of trained health care professionals such as physiotherapists, nurses and occupational therapists.

A course of PR usually lasts 6 to 8 weeks, with 2 sessions of about 2 hours each week. You’ll be in a group of about 8-16 people. PR courses are held in local hospitals, community halls, leisure centres and health centres.

A typical PR course will always start with an assessment of your health and abilities. Your PR team will ask questions to understand you and your body, so they can help you get the best out of the course.


At each session, you’ll spend about half the time on physical exercise. This will be designed to provide the right level of activity for you. You’ll get out of breath, but this is part of the therapy.


You will also learn about topics such as why exercise is so important for people with lung conditions, ways to be more positive about exercise and how to use breathing techniques during physical activity or when you feel anxious.


During sessions you will also have time to chat about how to manage anxiety and low mood, how to use your inhalers and other medicines, how to eat healthily, how to stop smoking and what to do when you’re unwell
