Cardiopulmonary conditions are among the most commonly diagnosed conditions worldwide.
These are conditions that affect the body’s heart, lungs and circulatory systems. Conditions that affect the heart and circulatory system include high blood pressure, heart attacks and chronic heart failure. Conditions that commonly affect the lungs include emphysema, chronic bronchitis, asthma and pulmonary fibrosis.
Often such conditions are caused through lifestyle and environmental factors such as poor diet, inactivity and smoking cigarettes.
These factors all promote high amounts of inflammation within the body, that over a long period of time can develop into the previously mentioned conditions.
People living with these conditions can manage and sometimes improve their disease through a structured and person-centred exercise program.
Exercise helps lower and manage blood pressure, improve cholesterol, reduce breathlessness and improve health related quality of life.
For people who have been diagnosed with any sort of cardiopulmonary condition please book in with our physiotherapist for your pre-screening to assess your current level of fitness, goals and medical history before joining our tailored exercise class, Beats and Breathe.
