Respiratory Physiotherapy- breathe better, live life, be amazing

Put simply, breathing is the foundation of our health. However, this function is regulalry compromised by stress, environment, excessive exercise, ilness, post-surgery or prolonged bed rest. These can change our overall biomechanical and biochemical respiratory regulators, ultimately affecting our health and function. We can help improve your focus, energy, and overall body performance through enhancing your respiratory health.

Elzanne Myburgh, one of our wonderful physiotherapists is extending her already extensive respiratory physiotherapy with the NZ respected Bradcliff Breathing Method training to be completed mid October 2020.

Physiotherapy can help treat your respiratory problems and improve your general functioning. You can benefit from respiratory physiotherapy at any stage of the disease, whether it is an acute episode, a chronic illness (like chronic obstructive pulmonary disease), early stages or at the terminal stage of the disease. The benefits are endless, whether you are recovering from the flu, Covid-19 or from a broken leg with limited cardiovascular exercise, we can certainly help.

Respiratory physiotherapy spans the continuum from sitting based breathing exercises to breathing control for sport’s performance.
