Heart and Breathing Resources for Physios

Access resources to support your practice

What is it?

This campaign aims to raise awareness of the support that physios can give to patients with issues with their heart, breathing or post stroke. During October 2020, we shared content and resources around the ways that physiotherapists can support people who have suffered from a heart attack or stroke.

Our message is “if you or someone you love has had heart or breathing issues, ask the physio”. The campaign is designed to educate the public and encourage them to see a  physiotherapist as part of their recovery.
