How Physiotherapy can help you this winter

how physiotherapy can help with flu symptoms



Not many people know that Physiotherapy can help alleviate the congestion and phlegm symptoms you experience when you have a cold, the flu, bronchitis or sinusitis.

Here’s how we can help you get healthy, faster, this winter:

  • We teach you how to breathe better – to improve your lung function, increase your lung capacity, reduce shortness of breath, and manage coughing.
  • We show you effective airway clearing techniques – to loosen and move mucus, making it easier to expel, especially if you suffer from a condition that produces excess mucus such as COPD and bronchitis.
  • We guide you on physical activity and exercise – which is crucial for maintaining overall health and to improve your lung function. We design personal tailored exercise programs, taking into consideration your abilities and goals.
  • We provide advice on how to manage your environment – to reduce risk for respiratory illness. This includes avoiding exposure to cold air, pollutants and allergens, keeping your chest area warm, and how to maintain good indoor air quality.
  • We advise you on your posture – since posture significantly impacts your breathing efficiency!
  • We can teach you how to relax – since stress and anxiety can worsen respiratory symptoms.
  • We provide personalised treatment plans – monitoring your symptoms and response to treatment, adjusting it as needed to ensure our treatment plan is effective for you.
  • We collaborate with your doctor and other medical professionals – to ensure you get comprehensive care and optimal outcomes.

Winter can be a challenging time for people with existing respiratory conditions, but with proper physiotherapy management, you can stay healthy and reduce your risk for complications. If you have any questions or need further information, please don’t hesitate to contact us!
