Respiratory Physiotherapy - Rehabilitation For Respiratory Conditions

At our neurological rehabilitation center, our team of expert physiotherapists is dedicated to enhancing the quality of life of our patients through a comprehensive range of services, and one vital aspect of our commitment is helping patients with respiratory problems. Our professional team recognises the impact that neurological conditions can have on respiratory health, leading to issues such as breathlessness and compromised pulmonary function. That is why our clinical experts are here to help those with respiratory problems with tailored pulmonary treatment and therapy services. Whether you are seeking relief from chronic coughing, breathlessness, or postural complications, our experts can provide intensive care to enhance your pulmonary health and overall quality of life.

Respiratory Physiotherapy

As a part of our service, we offer respiratory care and physiotherapy to our complex clients to maximise optimum health benefits, improve quality of life, their wellbeing and prevent hospital admissions.

Our community based pulmonary physiotherapy service is suitable for ambulatory patients to the more profound complex patients who have a respiratory compromise and are at risk of developing chest infections and hospitalisation. The end goal of chest physiotherapy is to improve respiratory function.

Respiratory therapy management is a life-saving arsenal of techniques. It clears lung and airway secretions, expands the lungs, and boosts oxygen levels. Blockages in the airway from secretions can restrict oxygen flow, making you vulnerable to dangerous infections like pneumonia. Don’t ignore it – respiratory failure could be a real risk.

Our expert team will provide you with professional techniques and clinical support, designed to your symptoms and conditions.

We offer a range of tools and techniques, from child-friendly games for our paediatric clients to advanced respiratory therapies like ACBT and percussion, all designed to enhance breathing patterns for our patients. Our assessments ensure the right equipment for optimal respiratory function, airway clearance, and mechanical assistance in clearing pulmonary secretions.

Our team will assist you in improving lung function through specialised techniques like coughing, vibration vests, and flutters to effectively clear phlegm.

Respiratory physiotherapy is a specialised therapy that enhances lung function and breathing. It’s beneficial for those with asthma, COPD, or recovering from respiratory infections.


Our therapists work closely with the client’s acute respiratory team to deliver comprehensive therapy services. We help execute treatment plans, aid in rehabilitation, and enhance recovery for those with pulmonary conditions.

Book a treatment home, school or community visit

To make clients feel as comfortable as possible, we offer home visits or arrange treatment at one of our community clinics at William Merritt Centre, Leeds, or a similar centre or location of your choice in your local community across the North West and Yorkshire, or we could arrange to see you at a suitable space within your community.

We appreciate our clients may have mobility restrictions and will always consider how to make consultations and treatments as convenient, time optimised and pain-free as possible. Community-based rehabilitation and integration back into the community is the key to any successful rehabilitation. Besides the benefit of a familiar environment and the discipline of following treatment plans within their own setting , community-based treatment enables the client to stay motivated while involving their family and friends.
