Physiotherapy may be an appropriate form of treatment for you if you have a respiratory condition. It’s a non-invasive, non-surgical option, which may especially benefit those who are unable to receive a General Anaesthetic. The goal of therapy is to help open up the airway, and thereby improve and regulate your breathing. This can be done through both training your breathing patterns and by changing your posture to make each breath easier.
Parkside Hospital offers regular clinics to treat Bronchiectasis, sputum clearance, breathlessness, hyperventilation, Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD), Asthma and repetitive chest infections. Physiotherapy can also help to remove mucus from the lungs for sufferers of Cystic Fibrosis and chronic coughing.
You can register for tailored Pilates classes at Parkside as part of your Respiratory Physiotherapy treatment. It is suitable for patients of all ages, and could improve your mood and emotional wellbeing as well as your health. Pilates can help you to control your breathing and improve your posture, and can also relieve neck and back pain.
