Chest Physiotherapy

Is a group of different techniques that are used to improve lung function and help breathe better.  The Physiotherapist drains lung secretions and improves ventilation with a variety of Airway Clearance Techniques (ACT). Each individual is different and might need a different approach according to their needs, cognition and activity level.

During the treatment, the Physiotherapist will  conduct a thorough assessment, and will follow up with the implementation of the best, most effective and evidence based treatment to ensure the best outcome. 

The following are some of the techniques that we use:

  • Postural drainage
  • Breathing exercises
  • Chest percussion and vibration
  • Prophylactic airway clearance
  • Patient Education

We encourage our patients to consult with their doctor or pediatrician to see if chest physiotherapy can help with their condition.
