At FloRehab Center we have a specific activity program for each individual patient according to the first initial evaluation.


Here are some examples on how we treat COPD:

  • We use Acupressure on the lung meridians to help improve breathing right away. Also increases overall lung function, increasing lung capacity.
  • To decrease the residual air inside the lung plus acupressure we use breathing exercises as well. Teach the patient how to breathe properly.
  • Using the machines, to increase accessory breathing muscles. EX shoulder / chest.
