Respiratory Services

Do you suffer from;

  • excessive sputum
  • troublesome  cough
  •  breathlessness
  • does it feel like you can't get a deep or satisfying breath in?

Respiratory physiotherapy can help.

For Sputum:

Respiratory physiotherapy includes a few simple breathing exercises that are easier than coughing. With these effortless, straighforward techniques, we can  keep your lungs clear of sputum, and keep coughing to a minimum.

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

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

For Breathlessness:

Respiratory physiotherapy can also help you control and reduce breathlessness and improve exercise tolerance.

  • 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.
