Pulmonary rehabilitation (PR) is a comprehensive intervention based on a thorough health assessment followed by patient-tailored therapies such as exercise training, education, and behaviour change, designed to improve the physical and psychological condition of people with chronic respiratory disease and to promote long-term adherence to health-enhancing behaviours. PR is designed for people who have recently experienced an exacerbation, with the goal of improving their respiratory function and, as a result, their quality of life (QOL) and involvement in daily activities. When compared to standard therapy, PR has been shown to improve health-related QOL and exercise capacity in people with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). People with chronic (long-term) lung disorders can benefit from pulmonary rehabilitation, which is a supervised education and exercise programme. It will not cure the lung condition, but it may help patients breathe easier, gain strength, and have a better quality of life. Pulmonary Rehabilitation may be beneficial to anyone with a chronic lung disease. Muscle weakness is a side effect of chronic lung disease. It is necessary to re-strengthen the muscles involved in breathing and movement and PR helps with that.
