SPONSORED: West Park Rehab/Diagnostics Offers Cardiopulmonary Reconditioning Program

west-park-winded-up-steps2SENECA, Pa. – A Cardiopulmonary Reconditioning Program is now being offered at West Park Rehab/Diagnostics in Seneca.

What is cardiopulmonary reconditioning?

Some individuals who contract Covid emerge with significant fatigue and shortness of breath with even mundane activities. The cardiopulmonary reconditioning program at West Park Rehab was designed before the onset of Covid with the idea of helping individuals with endurance problems safely improve their tolerance for daily activities. But now, this program takes on a more specific purpose in helping patients that are trying to recover after Covid. This program is a therapeutic, medically monitored treatment program that is designed to help patients of any age to improve their quality of life and recover from compromised endurance that results from cardiopulmonary or illness-related de-conditioning. As always their program will be coordinated with your doctor. This program is primarily performed in their Seneca office.

This program is part of formal physical therapy and is designed to help patients with compromised endurance, shortness of breath, muscle weakness, or other reasons for general de-conditioning. For many individuals, decreased endurance can lead to avoiding activities that provoke feeling breathless which can lead to doing less, which can lead to muscle weakness, which can lead to feeling depressed and/or anxious which can lead back to doing less. So the cycle feeds on itself.

However, the Cardiopulmonary Reconditioning Program at West Park Rehab/Diagnostics provides education on breathing strategies that will utilize the lungs more efficiently and exercises that can help a patient safely improve general endurance, strength, flexibility, and tolerance of activities of daily living. In some cases, the use of Yoga-based stretching and breathing techniques can be incorporated into these therapy programs.

Brandy-Snavely-PTA at the Seneca office is a Registered Yoga Teacher and can utilize this specialized training to enhance a Cardiopulmonary Reconditioning Program. Cardiopulmonary reconditioning is not a replacement for formal cardiac rehab; however, it does fill the gap for those individuals who have become less active due to endurance-based impairments.
