Manual chest physical therapy and vibration is an aggressive patting to the chest with cupping hands followed by forced shaking of the chest. This technique helps relieve chest congestion and or bronchial blockage. Our clinic is highly trained in this type of therapy. At each visit we will evaluate your breath sounds, heart rate, respiratory rate, blood pressure and oxygen level. Manual chest PT and vibration is so successful most patients only require 1 to 3 visits to achieve 100% in breathing tolerance and capacity.
Diagnoses appropriate for chest PT are:
- Post Covid-19
- Bronchial blood clots
- Cystic fibrosis
- Bacterial infections
- Viral infections
- Fungal infections
- Interstitial pulmonary fibrosis
- Pulmonary edema
In addition to chest PT our clinic provides deep breathing exercise and cardio exercise to build strength and breathing tolerance allowing out patients to regain full function. You do not need a physician referral to get an appointment with us. However, we will attempt to email and / or call your primary care provider. Please call our office for an appointment 405-265-2255.
