A lot of people keep asking me about CF related exercise and I thought I could start posting a bunch of collected thoughts and excercise tips in one place for you. I hope you enjoy reading these as much as I enjoy passing them along. Feel free to post some comments with your own tips and advice too.
Being conscious of your diet and things you eat when you have CF becomes so important to maintaining good health. I've had a lot of experience in this area and would love to share some things with you.
Keeping on top of breathing treatments can be overwhelming, but again, this is a big part of Cystic Fibrosis. Here, I will share some things to keep in mind from making time for treatments, alternative treatments, and how they play a role in the baisc day top day.
The Rock CF Foundation’s Rocks Back Program will provide percussion and wind instruments and lessons or resources/programs to patients living with cystic fibrosis in the United States.
Keeping the airways clear is a crucial daily activity for people living with CF. It is proven that airway clearance from playing a wind instrument helps to preserve lung function. Drumming could also provide exercise benefits as well. Aside from helping to improve or maintain lung function, there are countless other benefits of playing music. Time managements skills, boosted social skills and promoting happiness are only a few. Fostering self-expression and relieving stress is especially important for someone living with a chronic disorder such as cystic fibrosis. If the Rock CF Rocks Back programs can help CF patients maintain lung function, feel like “everyone else” for a few hours a weeks or help them cope with any disease related stress or anxiety, we will be accomplishing our goal of improving the quality of life for patients living with cystic fibrosis.
