Breathing Exercises & Postures To Help With COPD

Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), which includes chronic bronchitis and emphysema, is a chronic lung disease that makes it hard to breathe. The disease is increasingly common, affecting millions of Americans, and is the third leading cause of death in the U.S. The good news is COPD is often preventable and treatable.

Freudenthal Home Health's very own, Dr. Robert Knowles and Dr. Read Wall, discuss pursed-lip breathing and breathless postures designed to help persons with COPD, and other breathing issues, breath a little easier.
