PEDIATRIC RESPIRATORY PHYSIOTHERAPY
Also known as “respiratory gymnastics” or “respiratory kinesiotherapy”, pediatric respiratory physiotherapy is used to treat respiratory infections in newborns, infants and children. Respiratory infections significantly increase the production of secretions (sputum) that the baby or child cannot get rid of, compromising the respiratory function. The purpose of physiotherapy is help to eliminate/reduce secretions, and for this, a set of specific manual therapeutic techniques are used in order to mobilize and expel bronchial secretions with practically immediate results.
