COPD is a lung disease that limits airflow and causes shortness of breath. Normally easy tasks such as walking to a car, having a shower, and performing household duties can make the simple task of breathing very difficult. If you or a loved one live with asthma, bronchitis or emphysema, this medically engineered DVD program can help you improve your mobility. Performing the routines on this DVD can improve your ability to breathe, increase your enjoyment to participate in daily activities, and release stress. Occupational Therapy Practitioner Suzanne Andrews instructs you with gentle therapeutic breathing and specially designed exercise techniques to help increase your lung capacity. Exercise is essential because the less active you are, the weaker your muscles get. Weak muscles need more oxygen and this causes a chain reaction of being short of breath. Suzanne guides you with easy to follow, yet effective, techniques to create stronger breathing muscles. You have a choice of performing the movements seated or standing. The DVD also contains special therapeutic energy conservation techniques to improve your ability to cook, dress, play with your pet and more to help you stay active and get more enjoyment out of life.
