Respiratory physical therapy is generally less well-known than traditional physical therapy. In its simplest terms it is physical therapy for all things lungs and heart. Respiratory physical therapists are licensed practitioners who work closely with doctors to treat a variety of cardiorespiratory conditions.
Patients may work with a respiratory physical therapist in the hospital after major surgery, during a stay in intensive care (ICU), or while treating a severe chest infection. Outpatient respiratory therapy often occurs for conditions such as repeated chest infections, asthma, and chronic obstructive pulmonary (lung) disease (COPD) to help improve quality of life.
Many respiratory physical therapists in outpatient settings offer services which include lung rehabilitation, cardiac rehabilitation, and treatments to overcome chronic cough and excess mucus trapped within the lungs.
Respiratory physical therapists can play an important role in helping people overcome breathing challenges associated with and connected to anxiety and panic, and those who experience breathing pattern disorders such as hyperventilation. Respiratory physical therapy also plays a key role in helping athletes enhance their performance through strengthening the breathing muscles.
Justine Prior, ROMBOT's Founder and CEO (headquartered in San Francisco, CA) said: "We are excited to be hosting our first event where attendees can learn from professionals and get easy access to medically validated care and information. At ROMBOT we are focused on empowering people through joint health, and in recognizing the need for information on lung health and for practical guides, we're offering some complimentary, empowering videos which all of our lungs can benefit from."
Jodi Wolmer, ROMBOT's expert respiratory physical therapist said: "It's a privilege empowering people to improve their quality of life through breathing, ROMBOT is an ideal platform to do that in the comfort of their own homes.
How we breathe is so vital to how we live, yet it is so often ignored and taken for granted. It's the first thing we do and it is the last thing we do, but the quality of our breathing between those two moments determines the quality of our life. When you find it difficult to breathe nothing else matters. A respiratory physical therapist can help you restore healthy breathing patterns, relieve shortness of breath and assist you in building a foundation for optimal health and wellbeing."
