Cardiorespiratory Physiotherapy – Whitewater Physiotherapy provides clinic or in-home physiotherapy and assessment for any cardiorespiratory condition. Examples include:
- Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD), asthma, chronic bronchitis, emphysema and bronchiectasis
- Pneumonia after medical treatment (e.g. antibiotics) has been initiated
- Cystic Fibrosis
- Neuro-degenerative conditions that cause impairment of peak expiratory flow
- Cardiac conditions that have been stabilized by medical treatment
In most cases, your physician will be involved either by recommending or approving physiotherapy treatment. We have experience treating all types of cardiorespiratory conditions in various settings and have training in respiratory and cardiac rehabilitation. We can teach family members how to help with augmented breathing and assisted cough techniques. We can provide different types of mucus clearance therapy such as percussion, postural drainage and use of mucus clearance devices. Treatment may also include respiratory muscle training or supervised cardiovascular exercise.
