Your breathing patterns play a vital role in your overall health and recovery but sometimes can be disrupted due to injury or stress. By using the correct muscles, you can optimise your breathing to improve strength and stability while exercising or during recovery. It’s also possible to train your breathing into a natural calm pattern reassuring your brain that you are safe and can relax.

What can respiratory physiotherapy help with?

Respiratory physiotherapy can help in the recovery of breathing issues related to musculoskeletal injuries, concussion and stress, including:

  • Feeling short of breath
  • Unable to take a full breath
  • Musculoskeletal chest pain
  • Difficulty co-ordinating breathing during exercise
  • Anxiety and foggy brain


Often a useful test you can undertake at home is the Nijmegen Test, this can help identify if you are suffering from hyperventilation. If you score 23 and over, consult with a healthcare professional, and suggest being referred to us for treatment.

While respiratory physiotherapy can play a crucial role in recovery from injuries, stress and mental health, it's important to consult with a healthcare professional prior to speaking with us for a comprehensive recovery plan tailored to your specific needs.

Why Is good breathing so important to recovery?

Good breathing is vital for recovery, particularly when you have suffered a concussion. Proper breathing ensures optimal oxygen supply to the brain and body, promoting healing. It reduces stress, manages pain, and improves sleep quality, all of which aid in the recovery process. Additionally, it helps alleviate muscle tension and cognitive issues often associated with concussions, fostering an environment conducive to healing.

Having trouble with breathing but haven’t suffered an injury?

It’s not uncommon for people to suffer disrupted breathing or being incapable of controlling their breathing despite not having suffered a serious injury (like concussion).

We can still work with you in these circumstances and apply the same sorts of techniques to help you regain control and reduce stress.
