Imagine trying to breathe, but feeling an obstruction with every single breath as oxygen tries to force its way into the deeper recesses of your lungs.
Imagine being constantly tired and fatigued, because your muscles are not getting the oxygen they so desperately need. That's a day in the life of a patient with cystic fibrosis.
Deep, unobstructed breathing is something we take for granted. It's not a luxury that patients with cystic fibrosis can enjoy. Breathing difficulties can result in other complications. The elimination of excessive, unnecessary mucus from the body with physical therapy helps prevent further complications. It helps to fight infections since excessive mucus in the lungs can harbor infective bacteria.
If you or someone you know suffers from cystic fibrosis or has any difficulty in breathing, call our office today. There is a lot that we can do for you as your physical therapists, and helping you breathe easy is one of them. We'll provide you with the comfort and relief you need. Give us a call today.
