What is it?
The intention of this campaign is to bring public awareness to the benefits that physiotherapy can bring to respiratory care, breathlessness, and Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). Content includes the conditions they can help with, exercises they sometimes recommend, and further demonstrate the benefits of a physiotherapist’s input in all areas of life.
Why focus on Respiratory Care
Physiotherapists serving those in need of respiratory care have a key role in the integrated care required by patients with breathlessness or other respiratory diseases. Our aim is to demonstrate how physiotherapists can help with:
- Breathlessness management techniques
- Breathing exercises and positions of ease
- Helping patients improve fitness through pulmonary rehabilitation/exercise
- Chest clearance techniques
- among other recommendations as part of an overarching plan for care.
