Respiratory Physiotherapy is the assessment and treatment of people with disorders of the respiratory system. 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, such as general surgery and severe illness requiring intensive care. Most approaches involve the application of various chest clearance techniques, also exercise and learning pacing and resting positions to enable maximum functional ability.

Treatment Techniques

  • Manual techniques to enable chest clearance
  • Postural drainage
  • Therapeutic exercise
  • Rehabilitation, for example post abdominal surgery or an intensive care admission.
  • Use of various types of equipment to assist in respiratory care e.g. Acapella / PEP mask / Cough Assist devices.
  • Education and advice on self management.
