Respiratory Physiotherapy

What is Respiratory Physiotherapy?

This includes conditions affecting the lungs, such as chronic bronchitis, emphysema, and cystic fibrosis. It also includes a wide range of conditions that impact the respiratory system. Most approaches involve the application of various chest clearance techniques, also exercise and learning pacing and resting positions to enable maximum functional ability. 

Common conditions which may require respiratory physiotherapy

  • Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD -bronchitis, emphysema and chronic asthma)
  • Bronchiectasis
  • Pulmonary Fibrosis
  • Disorders of breathing (i.e. hyperventilation disorder)

What can respiratory physiotherapy do for me?

  • Help reduce breathlessness and the work of breathing,
  • Teaching techniques to aid sputum/mucus removal,
  • Cough suppression techniques,
  • Help me use my inhaler properly,
  • Advice on managing a lung condition,
  • Help improve my fitness and functional abilities (i.e. carrying out daily tasks),
  • Improve knowledge and understanding of my condition.
