Physiotherapy is for everyone
The city of Perth has started to take its own path to physiotherapy, with a number of treatments and techniques being developed by the city’s healthcare workforce.
In Perth, the city is seeing more than a third of its population have chest physiotherapy.
Physiotherapy Perth says the number of patients receiving physiotherapy is on the rise.
“We’re seeing that there’s a growing demand for chest physiotherapies across Perth and we’ve been working closely with local healthcare professionals to develop a range of treatment options to meet that demand,” Dr Michael Wilson, chief medical officer at Perth Hospital, told ABC Perth.
“We’re also seeing a growing need for a wider range of treatments for neck, back and shoulder issues.
We’ve been in contact with the Department of Health to try and get some more support and guidance on some of these new treatments, including a chest physiology.”
There’s been some work done to reduce the cost of chest physiologies and we are now working with the local community to identify potential areas for improvement and make sure that we’ve got all the right support available to meet this demand.
“Dr Wilson said chest physiologists were now using a range from a traditional chest lift to a “totally unique” chest lift using the body’s core muscles.
In the past, chest physiographers had to lift the patient to the floor by using their arms and legs.
Now, they can lift them from a kneeling position, using the muscles in their chest to lift them up.
A chest physiologist can also use a device called a chest plug to help lift the chest, which can be used by patients who are struggling with pain, to alleviate their discomfort.
The use of the chest plug was not new to Perth, as the area had been using the devices for centuries.
But Dr Wilson said there was now a lot of awareness around the device and its benefits.
For chest physiosticians, there is a lot more information out there and they’ve had a lot to do with that, he said.
It’s been a challenge to develop treatments to meet the demand, he added.
Some of the newer treatments are using the neck and back muscles to help the chest physiocenter get more comfortable.
He said that, in addition to being able to use the neck, it was also a great time to exercise the back and chest muscles.”
The neck and the back muscles are what are called the primary muscles and they tend to have the highest rates of back pain and neck pain,” he said, adding that these muscles are also involved in the breathing and breathing control.
Dr Kelly said there were also benefits to having a chest lift.
If the chest is really tight, like when you’re sitting, it’s easy to overdo it and cause chest pain and you can get neck and shoulder pain as well.
They’re the main muscles that help with the breath control.
So, you can breathe through the chest through the neck muscles, then you can move the chest down the back so that the chest goes up and down.
This gives you a better feeling of fullness and a deeper chest.
When you’ve had chest pain, if you feel like you’re doing too much, you know you’ve got to stop and breathe through your chest.
You can feel the muscles contracting and relaxing and you’re feeling a bit of relaxation.
Once you’re breathing through your heart, the chest can then come up through the diaphragm and down through the belly button.
You can feel a bit more relief in the chest area, Dr Kelly said.”
It’s important that you know how to relax the chest muscles so you don’t cause pain.
And it’s important you know what to do if you get a chest pain or a sore throat.
