COPD covers a variety of health issues including emphysema, asthma, bronchitis, tumours or any complaints or illnesses affecting the lungs. It has been proven that for people suffering from lung complaints, gentle exercise is an excellent way to help the lungs function a little better by circulating oxygen around the body.
