Respiratory Physiotherapy Assessment

Respiratory physiotherapy can help manage breathlessness and cough and help you gain more control over these symptoms. It can also help to rebalance dysfunctional breathing patterns that can cause many unwanted symptoms and limit exercise performance.

Hippocrates observed that breathing is the balancing force in maintaining mental and physical health

At Spire Leiciester Hospital we offer specialist advice in:

  • Cough control
  • Chest clearance techniques
  • Coping strategies for breathlessness and panic
  • Breathing control
  • Breathing pattern retraining
  • Relaxation

What does respiratory physiotherapy assessment involve? 

Having an individual assessment with an experienced respiratory physiotherapist can help identify which self management programme could help you.

The assessment usually covers a detailed discussion about your symptoms, how you are managing it currently, a review of any existing chest clearance techniques you might have, or where appropriate observing breathing patterns, for example, at rest, walking and stair climbing.

In addition the physiotherapist will discuss your lifestyle with you to explore the possibility of related links or triggers to symptoms you may have.

Long term reviews are available to enable you to continue your progress towards your lifestyle goal.
