Cardio-respiratory Physiotherapy

Cardio-respiratory refers to the heart (cardio) and the lungs (respiratory), which work together to transport oxygen throughout the body. The main function of lungs and heart is to supply oxygen to our body which is essential to maintain a physically active lifestyle. Cardio-respiratory conditions can restrict your ability to deliver enough oxygen to your body when needed. Conditions that limit your cardio-respiratory function will leave you coughing or wheezing and short of breath. This also affects your strength, vitality and sense of wellbeing.
