Breathe Better With Postural Drainage Therapy
-Article shared from HTS Monthly Newsletter, November 2022
Mucus in the lungs is a common symptom of many chronic lung diseases. Mucus plays an essential role by trapping irritants to protect your body from infection. However, for people living with chronic lung conditions such as COPD, asthma, and chronic bronchitis – the mucus can collect in your airway in excess.
Percussion and Postural Drainage Therapy can help treat breathing problems due to inflammation and mucus in the airways and lungs. Postural Drainage Therapy uses percussions, 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 the lungs healthy.
