Respiratory Physiotherapy

Welcome To Chapman Physiotherapy

Individuals with most of the lung conditions are often limited due to symptoms of breathlessness and cough day to day, and few may suffer from panic attacks. These symptoms may have an effect on daily activities which can sometimes be frustrating for both individual and family members.

How Can We Help?

We are here to help in dealing with above issues by providing certain interventions such as techniques to clear mucus from airways which are tiny tubes in your lungs, breathlessness management by following strategies that can reduce work of breathing, give advice on home exercises and managing energy levels, education to improve knowledge on your respiratory condition and improve your functional abilities (to carry out daily tasks).

What could we do more?

At Chapman Physiotherapy, Anil can also advise on respiratory medication, review inhaler technique, nebulisers/oxygen, provide training on suction and specialist equipment such as cough assist machines.

In addition, he can provide education on prevention/management of chest infections, existing support services in community and onward referrals to local NHS services if appropriate. Sometimes diagnosing any underlying new problems relevant to respiratory issues can be missed easily, and therefore he will carry out a comprehensive assessment to make sure you get the right treatment. If necessary, he will communicate with your GP to have further investigations in hospital. He understands how hard it is when you can’t breathe and uncertainty about what could happen in future. At Chapman Physiotherapy we are here to help you.
