Teaching Healthy Techniques to Respiratory Therapy Patients at Annual Gardening Day

Redford, Mich. (May 27, 2011)---Reporters: Want to cover this event? Please RSVP to Beth Montalvo, 
Valley Hill Therapy Center, Botsford Hospital's outpatient Pulmonary Rehabilitation Program, is hosting its 5th Annual Gardening Day on Tuesday, June 7 from 9:30 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. for its current patients at this Redford facility. The event is part of patients' supervised exercise treatments, teaching them to use healthy techniques during an everyday activity, such as gardening. Techniques include energy conservation tips and purse lip breathing. 
Valley Hill offers a multidisciplinary treatment plan under medical direction to improve functional capacity and quality of life for people with asthma, emphysema, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease and other chronic lung conditions. Respiratory therapists work with patients on controlling symptoms, slowing their disease’s progression, increasing their ability to live independently and building endurance. Physical therapists help patients improve strength, gait and balance, and muscle function. 
Gardening Day gives patients a fun, practical application for using healthy techniques, which allow patients to enjoy an activity that they might not have been able to perform prior to therapy. This event helps put it all together for Valley Hills’ patients. 
Valley Hill Therapy Center is located at 26905 Grand River Avenue in Redford, just east of Inkster Road. To learn more, call (313) 387-3800, or visit
