CHRISTUS Mother Frances Hospital – Sulphur Springs Business News

November is both Lung Cancer and COPD Awareness Month

Are you noticing a theme? Our lungs are vital! As always, having an annual physical by your Primary Care provider is of utmost importance. If your provider decides you need further diagnostics they will be able to order testing. We have a Pulmonologist in Sulphur Springs several times a month. If you do not have a Primary Care provider, CHRISTUS Trinity Clinic has providers taking new patients at 903.885.3181. For a referral to the Pulmonologist, call CHRISTUS Trinity Clinic and request their Sulphur Springs clinic.

Pulmonary Rehabilitation

Do you need help managing your lung condition? Pulmonary rehabilitation can help. Pulmonary rehab is a program that can help you learn how to breathe easier and improve your quality of life. You can benefit from pulmonary rehab if you have:

· Emphesema

· Ashthma

· Chronic bronchitis

· Bronchiectasis

· Cystic Fibrosis

· A Neuromuscular disease (such as Multiple Sclerosis or Parkinson’s Disease)

· Lung Cancer

· History of smoking

· Post lung surgery

· Post COVID shortness of breath

Pulmonary rehab can make a difference. It is a safe, smart way to help you: decrease symptoms like being short of breath, coughing and wheezing. It can help you breathe better, get stronger, decrease stress, and reduce the risks of future lung problems and related hospital admissions. Pulmonary rehabilitation is designed to help increase strength, endurance, and overall health through exercise, education, diet, and support while decreasing patients’ shortness of breath.
