If you have chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), you may think that exercise is not for you because the condition makes it more difficult to breathe. But in fact, many medical professionals recommend regular physical activity as a way to help you breathe easier.

Take this quiz to better understand how physical activity may improve your symptoms and what exercises are best to do. Of course, you should always consult with your own doctor before starting any new exercise routine, especially if you have a chronic condition like COPD.

“Exercise helps prevent flare ups of your COPD, improves quality of life, and makes you feel better!”

-Robert C. Hinkle, MD, FCCP, FAASM, Pulmonary Medicine
