Feeling short of breath?

Bounce Physios are specially trained to help people manage and overcome a whole range of respiratory conditions including:

  • Asthma
  • Pneumonia
  • Bronchiectasis
  • Bronchitis
  • COPD

People with these conditions commonly experience symptoms such as shortness of breath, persistent cough, increased work of breathing, and difficulty exercising. Physiotherapists can help patients with respiratory conditions using many treatments including:

  • Hands on Airway Clearance Techniques
  • Deep breathing exercises
  • Coughing and breathing strategies
  • Home exercise programs to encourage a healthy Respiratory system

Having trouble getting something off your chest?

Our Physios are trained in a number of Airway Clearance Techniques to assist with clearing secretions that are often present in acute bouts of Respiratory Disease. Also known as Percussions & Vibrations, these techniques will typically involve the patient lying or sitting still while the therapist uses their hands to manually clap and vibrate the chest wall. This shakes loose the thick, sticky secretions that can grip onto the lung walls and make it difficult to breathe or cause persistent coughing.
