LungSmart Physiotherapy offers consultation with adult cardio-respiratory physiotherapy expertise, including thorough patient assessment and standardised outcome measure assessment, followed by evidence-based therapies tailored to the individual. This service supports patients and their doctor/s to develop and regularly review a suitable management plan for controlling their symptoms of lung disease.

LungSmart Pulmonary Rehabilitation is group-based and provides supervised exercise treatment tailored for people with chronic respiratory disease. Pulmonary Rehabilitation provided to individuals with chronic respiratory disease (including COPD, interstitial lung disease, bronchiectasis, and lung cancer) has demonstrated improvements in symptoms, exercise tolerance, and quality of life. Standard rehabilitation includes supervised group exercise training twice weekly for eight weeks, supervised by our physiotherapists.
