Cardiorespiratory physiotherapy treatment is a branch of physiotherapy specialising in the rehabilitation, compensation and further prevention of ailments concerning the heart and lungs. These conditions can manifest themselves through consistent coughing, shortness of breath, increased efforts in breathing and reduction in the ability to workout. In patients suffering from asthma, bronchiectasis, emphysema, bronchitis, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, angina, peripheral vascular disease, heart attack, hypertension, injury of heart or lungs, there is an increased chance of breathing troubles. It is widely considered that proper exercise can aid in the prevention of diseases and is an integral part of managing the discomforts faced by these patients. Patients who undergo acute heart and lung injury or have recently undergone an operation would need physiotherapy in respiratory care. First of all, your physiotherapist will first evaluate your health conditions including your cardiorespiratory system, the level of mobility and endurance for treatment. This treatment plays a dominant role to prevent the most common health complications in a patient. When an individual is admitted to the hospital or recovering from any surgery like abdominal surgery or orthopaedic surgery, your doctor or a cardiorespiratory physical therapy refresher may ask you to undergo a cardiorespiratory physiotherapy treatment either in a hospital or in your home so that you can rehabilitate from your condition faster and prevent the occurrence of common ailments that may stop you from doing your regular activities.
