– Six-Week Pulmonary Boot Camp Aims to Motivate Patients and Alleviate Symptoms –
The Pulmonary Wellness & Rehabilitation Center, now in its 21st year of providing the highest quality and most expertly delivered patient experience in Pulmonary Wellness, is launching a new 6-week Pulmonary Wellness Online Boot Camp. The program – a collaborative effort between the most accomplished wellness & rehabilitation professionals in the field – will officially launch on October 15, 2018 and offer daily motivation, insights, exercise and education programs to enhance the quality of life for respiratory patients.
Dr. Noah Greenspan, DPT, CCS, EMT-B, founder of the Pulmonary Wellness & Rehabilitation Center and Board-Certified Clinical Specialist in Cardiovascular and Pulmonary Physical Therapy with more than 25 years of experience, is the visionary behind the Boot Camp. Under his direction, the Center has conducted more than 100,000 exercise sessions and been named “Best of the United States” in cardiovascular and pulmonary physical therapy. Dr. Greenspan is also the author of Ultimate Pulmonary Wellness, a comprehensive resource for all people living with respiratory disease, including patients’ families, caretakers and clinicians. In addition to print and e-books, Ultimate Pulmonary Wellness is also available to read free of charge on the Center’s website, at https://www.pulmonarywellness.com.
“The Pulmonary Wellness Boot Camp is a fantastic complement to our existing on-site services and an effective way for individuals suffering from respiratory disease to take the necessary steps towards alleviating their symptoms,” said Dr. Greenspan. “The overwhelming majority of people who need pulmonary wellness & rehabilitation don’t have access for any number of reasons. Now, from the comfort of their own homes, participants will be motivated, educated, and activated – significantly improving their quality of life.”
Lesson content delivered daily will include cinema-quality educational presentations, daily meditations and motivations, exercise sessions, live interactive group seminars and Q&A Sessions, and personalized 1-on-1 phone or video consultations.
Each aspect of the Boot Camp is presented by the most experienced experts with a combined 364+ years of experience in the field. The diverse team of professionals consists of Dr. Donna Frownfelter, internationally-recognized clinician, author, educator and consultant in the area of Cardiovascular and Pulmonary Physical Therapy; Donna Wilson, RN, MSN, RRT, clinical nurse specialist, and personal trainer with the Integrative Medicine Service at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center; Mark Mangus, RRT, RPFT, FAARC, a 48-year veteran of respiratory care and 2017 Specialty Practitioner of the Year for the American Association of Respiratory Care; Brian Trzaskos, PT, LMT, CSCS, CMP, MI-C, practicing physical therapist and founder/director of the Institute for Rehabilitative Qigong and Tai Chi; and Marion Mackles, BS, PT, LMT, founding member of the Pulmonary Wellness & Rehabilitation Center, and chief of the Center’s Airway Clearance Unit; and Dr. Greg Sweeney, PT, DPT, CCS, cardiopulmonary clinical specialist and Program Manager of the Cardiac and Pulmonary Rehabilitation Centers at NYU Langone Medical Center. Together with Dr. Greenspan, this team of experts will lead the Boot Camp in an effort to alleviate the symptoms of Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD), Idiopathic Fibrosis (IPF) and Pulmonary Hypertension (PH).
The Pulmonary Wellness Boot Camp is the latest service offered by the Pulmonary Wellness & Rehabilitation Center, which since 1998 has been empowering patients to lessen and reverse the effects of their diseases and effectively manage symptoms. The facility offers monitored exercise, nutritional counseling, stress management/relaxation training, airway clearance, smoking cessation, and rehabilitative Qigong and Tai Chi for pulmonary health.
