You don’t need a gym, or even a pair of trainers, to start getting fitter and stronger with PH. In this special set of videos, Carol Keen and Trudi Scott, Specialist Physiotherapists in Pulmonary Hypertension, demonstrate simple exercises that can be completed at home.
Bending down to put your shoes on, loading washing into the machine, or picking something up off the floor, can be hard work and leave you feeling breathless – but there are things that can make these everyday tasks easier.
