Physiotherapy for Respiratory Conditions

respiratory picPhysiotherapy assessment and treatment for adults with respiratory problems/ breathing difficulties is also available.

This may include manual respiratory physiotherapy (for example percussion), postural drainage, breathing exercises and education.

Emphasis is always placed on self-management to help prevent future problems.

Specific exercise and chest clearance programmes can be individually designed for the client to carry out in their own homes. Advice can also be given on the use of equipment, such as flutters or other respiratory devices.

Some commonly treated conditions include COPD, bronchiectasis, emphysema and chest infections.
