HTS is excited to launch Breathe: A Pulmonary Intervention Program supported and directed by physical and occupational therapists. Breathe is focused on Percussion and Postural Drainage Therapy also known as chest physical therapy. Therapy interventions can be beneficial in the respiratory treatment and physical rehabilitation of patients with COVID-19, COPD, Pneumonia, Bronchitis, Asthma, ARDS, Lung Cancer and many other respiratory conditions.
Postural Drainage Can Help Patients Breathe Better!
Postural drainage can help treat breathing problems due to inflammation and mucus in the airways of the lungs. Postural Drainage Therapy uses percussion, gravity, vibration, and deep breathing to loosen and drain mucus from the lungs and stimulate a productive cough to clear airways. Unclogging the airways is vital to keeping lungs healthy.
- Promote Drainage of Mucus and Secretions
- Stimulate a Productive Cough
- Optimize the Efficacy of Adjunctive Treatments, such as Inhaled Bronchodilators or Antibiotics
- Improve Oxygen in the Body
