When you have chronic lung disease, exercise is an important part of your treatment. You may wonder how you can exercise without becoming short of breath. The answer is, you can’t. But this isn’t necessarily bad. Shortness of breath is a sign that you’re pushing yourself. And pushing yourself now means you’ll be able to do more in the future. The steps on this sheet will help you get started.

Thank you so much for your rehab at Maywood Center for Health & Rehabilitation. When I arrived there, I could not walk at all from a fall. Thank you and your rehab people like Chico, Erica and Julie who helped me – mainly Chico. The food is good and when I didn’t like what they gave me, they made me something I liked. They have many activities at Maywood Center and a TV in each room that I can enjoy. The nurses made up my pills daily and were a great help to each patient there. I would recommend any person to stay at Maywood. The rooms are pleasant and so is the help. Thank you so much.
The Maywood Health Center in Maywood, New Jersey should be your first choice for rehabilitative care. As a doctor, retired veteran and dental professor, I am well aware of the complexities associated with today's healthcare system. Working as a healthcare provider, I know that quality healthcare can only occur when there is a team effort between the doctors, nurses, staff and patient. Many years ago, I was diagnosed with severe rheumatoid arthritis affecting every joint in my body. In the last two years, this doctor, who normally treats patients, actually became the patient. I had to undergo three, yes three, major surgeries: two back surgeries with metal implants and a total knee replacement. As a patient, preparing for surgery, I searched for highly skilled surgeons who could provide me with a positive outcome. However, I soon realized that in order to obtain a positive outcome, the quality of my rehabilitative care must be factored into the equation. In these hard economic times, it is unfortunate that most patients attempt to defray the cost of healthcare by placing the burden for rehabilitation on family members. That decision could prove to be very problematic. When considering your rehabilitative care, the first question you should ask is whether or not the family member has the expertise to take care of you 24 hours a day for "X" number of days? As for me, my three and one-half week stay at the Maywood Health Center proved to be one of the best decisions I have ever made. The doctors, nurses and staff at Maywood treated me with respect and provided me with the medical, physical, and occupational care that I needed. The Maywood Center took care of me so that I could return to work and continue to take care of my patients. Thank you Maywood Center for Health & Rehabilitation for a job well done!
