MyCOPDTeam has partnered with the Home Rehab Network to bring you videos filled with helpful tips and exercises that you can do from the comfort of your own home.
Walking is both a low-impact activity and one that is easy to incorporate into daily life. For those with COPD, activity can cause shortness of breath. Walking is easier to do if you use certain breathing techniques. In this video, respiratory therapist Alex Grichuhin from the Home Rehab Network discusses how to breathe well while walking.
This video will help those with COPD get the most out of walking by breathing correctly.
