Better Breathe: Incorporating Chest Physiotherapy into Your Daily Routine:

Chest physiotherapy:

Chest physiotherapy, also known as respiratory physiotherapy, is a specialized field that plays a crucial role in promoting respiratory health. It encompasses a range of techniques aimed at improving lung function, clearing airway secretions, and enhancing overall breathing efficiency.

The goal of CPT is to help you breathe better, whether that’s by optimizing your breathing pattern, improving gas exchange in the lungs, or mobilizing sputum, mucus, and secretions in your lungs to clear the airway.

Types of Chest Physiotherapy:

  • Postural Drainage
  • Chest Percussion and Vibration
  • Incentive Spirometry
  • Flutter Valve or Acapella Device
  • Positive Expiratory Pressure (PEP) Therapy

Benefits of Chest Physiotherapy:

  • Eliminate excess mucus from the lungs and prevent airways from becoming blocked.
  • Reduce chest infection
  • Reduce mucus production which clears the chest more easily and less tiring
  • Improve respiratory function or treat breathing problems due to swelling and too much mucus in the lungs.
