Respiratory Services

Do you suffer from;

  • excessive sputum
  • troublesome and irritating cough
  • are you limited by your breathlessness?
  • does it feel like you can't get a deep or satisfying breath in?

Respiratory physiotherapy can help.

For Sputum:

We can teach you a few simple breathing exercises that are far easier than coughing. With these effortless, straighforward techniques, we can help keep your lungs clear of sputum, and keep your coughing to a minimum.

Where indicated we can use additional products such as Flutter or PEP devices, Cough Assist/NIPPY clearway and suction.

Conditions treated include (but not exclusive to)

  • Bronchiectasis
  • Cystic Fibrosis
  • Chronic Bronchitis
  • Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD)
  • Chest infections

For Breathlessness:

Physiotherapy can also help you control and reduce your breathlessness and improve your exercise tolerance.

Conditions treated include

  • Long Covid
  • Breathing Pattern Disorder
  • Asthma
  • Fibrosing alveolitis
  • Pulmonary fibrosis

Where necessary, we use incentive spirometers and inspiratory muscle trainers.

For Ventilation:

At Clear Path Physiotherapy, we can support you to use your NIV and CPAP machines at home. We can use the Cough Assist device, or the NIPPY clearway, and provide suction when needed. We also manage clients using home oxygen.
