There Is a Practical Solution to Reduce Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) Symptoms Regardless of Age or Circumstances!

Tandem Strength & Balance provides hope to those living with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) after Medicare Physical Therapy terminates. Medicare Physical Therapy is initially helpful but unfortunately, rehab therapy is always terminated if progress stabilizes. Once rehab is no longer offered through insurance, individuals struggle to continue their exercises on their own and as time goes on, lack of direction and loss of strength start to emerge. Not knowing what other options might be available, it often leads to the health of the individual living with COPD to decline. That’s the very reason our company started 20+ years ago. We work with those with COPD to challenge its progression and we have no time limitations; we help individuals to maintain muscle strength and balance and to improve their quality of life.

When living with COPD, the less active you are, the less you’re physically able to do. Symptoms of breathlessness and fatigue during physical activities cause activity-avoiding behavior; leading to further de-conditioning. The cause and effect of not being active is that weak muscles require more oxygen, so an individual can develop shortness of breath just by walking or moving within his or her home. Strength-resistance exercise training, widely regarded as the cornerstone of pulmonary rehabilitation, is the best available means of improving muscle function in individuals with COPD. When your muscles are stronger, day-to-day tasks become easier and individuals can start to dream again about the things they want to do.

Strength-resistant exercise training, when done correctly and consistently, reduces daily symptoms of breathlessness and fatigue, improves physical fitness, reduces symptoms of anxiety, depression and improves quality of life for individuals living with COPD.

At Tandem Strength & Balance, our team consists of licensed physical therapists with a recognized track record of more than two decades, offers exclusive, strength-resistant exercises that hone in on specific muscles to lessen or eliminate breathing problems. We help individuals living with COPD understand why they are struggling and what exercises can be safely done to improve their living conditions. Our in-home, customized exercise training truly makes a difference in the lives of individuals with COPD.

Our service goes beyond helping clients restore their previous level of function; we help them achieve a level of function they didn’t think was possible.


Everyone starts to lose strength within 3-5 days after strength training has stopped. So many older adults can not afford to lose any strength because they are just getting by.


As physical therapists, we continue to challenge all of our clients in a way that caregivers and families can’t. We address the root cause of their mobility issues and help older adults build strength so they can enjoy their independence and keep living costs lower.
