Many patients are afflicted by chronic conditions that cause constriction and/or weakness of the airways making it difficult to obtain much needed oxygenation. Particularly at risk are seniors, and patients affected by Cystic Fibrosis, Muscular Dystrophy. These individuals often are unable to break up the secretions due to function resulting from their condition and can benefit from additional assistance. Chest Physiotherapy can help to break up and expel secretions sparing them from a great deal of discomfort, pulmonary degradation, and asphyxiation.
