Cardiovascular and Pulmonary Physiotherapy

Cardiovascular and pulmonary physiotherapy (CP) is a specialized type of physical therapy that is designed to improve cardiovascular and pulmonary function. CP can help to enhance exercise tolerance, strengthen respiratory muscles, and optimize overall respiratory health.

CP typically involves breathing exercises, airway clearance techniques, and tailored exercise regimens. Breathing exercises can help to improve lung capacity and reduce shortness of breath. Airway clearance techniques can help to remove mucus from the lungs, which can improve breathing and reduce the risk of infection. Tailored exercise regimens can help to improve cardiovascular fitness and respiratory function.

CP can be beneficial for people with a variety of conditions, including:

  • Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD)
  • Asthma
  • Heart failure
  • Pulmonary hypertension
  • Cystic fibrosis
  • Sleep apnea
  • Post-surgical recovery

CP can also be helpful for people who are at risk for developing these conditions, such as those who are overweight or obese, smoke, or have a family history of heart disease or lung disease.
