Cardiopulmonary

Physiotherapists are skilled in helping people who are coping with acute or chronic respiratory or cardiovascular conditions by improving the function and capacity of their cardiorespiratory system. Performing an assessment and discussing your goals helps your physiotherapist create a therapeutic plan as individual as your needs. Your program may include training in specific breathing and secretion clearance techniques, resistance training, endurance exercises and a specific exercise prescription—all of these can help you feel better and get more out of life.

Common cardiorespiratory conditions include:

  • Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD)
  • Asthma
  • Bronchiectasis
  • Bronchitis
  • Emphysema
  • Congestive Cardiac Failure (CCF)
  • Respiratory Infections, i.e. Pneumonia
  • Hypertension
  • Peripheral Vascular Disease
  • Angina
  • Heart Attack (MI)
  • Heart or lung injury or surgery
