Pediatric Chest Physiotherapy
The pulmonary anatomy of a newborn, infant and child is remarkably different; as infants and children grow up and develop, most structural and functional disadvantages disappear. As a parent, we always want to help or ease any trouble that our child is facing, especially when they can’t sleep because they are congested or when they can’t be themselves because they can’t breathe properly.
When a child has a cold, the mucus often thickens or gets stuck in the upper airway, limiting the child’s ability to breathe normally, and sometimes causing infections in the ear canals or lungs. Prevention is the key to avoiding infections and that is why at In Home Physiotherapy we offer Prophylactic Airway Clearance for babies, infants and kids. The Physiotherapist will do a thorough examination, perform a Prophylactic Airway Clearance and follow up with the selection of the best and most effective postural drainage if the lungs are compromised with mucus.
