Respiratory Physiotherapy

Respiratory Physiotherapy

Respiratory physiotherapy (or commonly called chest physio) is a form of physiotherapy that focuses on the respiratory system and cardiovascular systems. It helps to improve breathing and lung function, as well as alleviate symptoms associated with respiratory conditions such as asthma, bronchitis, COPD and emphysema.

Respiratory Physio

Respiratory physiotherapy techniques may include breathing exercises, airway clearance techniques and exercise therapy. These techniques aim to clear mucus and improve lung function, making it easier to breathe.

Your physiotherapist will work with you to create a personalised treatment plan that addresses your specific needs and goals. This may include exercises to improve strength, flexibility, and endurance, as well as breathing techniques to improve lung function and reduce symptoms.

Respiratory physiotherapy can also help to reduce the risk of complications from respiratory conditions, such as pneumonia and other infections. It can also improve the quality of life for those living with respiratory conditions such as bronchiectasis by helping them to breathe more easily and participate in daily activities.

If you are experiencing difficulty breathing or have been diagnosed with a respiratory condition, respiratory physiotherapy may be able to help. Consult with your doctor or a physiotherapist to see if it is right for you.
