Pre / post surgery

Having surgery can be daunting, however we ensure all of our patients are equipped with expert knowledge and skills to be able to best prepare themselves ahead of their operation, so they can confidently enter the operating theatre.

Treatment pre and post operatively may include:

– breathing exercises including airway clearance techniques

– strengthening exercises for various parts of your body depending on your symptoms and your presentation

– range of movement exercises to maintain joint mobility

– positioning and movement advice

– pain management advice

Why choose us?

We work closely with our patients to ensure they feel safe and supported, at a time when you may feel worried or apprehensive.

We are the chosen provider of respiratory physiotherapy for consultant thoracic surgeon, Mr Marco Scarci’s patients.

During your sessions, we will monitor your heart rate, oxygen levels, and breathing pattern, and you will work with your physiotherapist to ensure you are in the best physical health possible before having surgery. You will also be advised what to do, and what not to do, immediately after surgery.

Your own personalised program can be provided for you to complete outside of supervised sessions, and your treatment will be modified and progressed once the surgery has taken place.

In the longer term, we will work with you to help you be as active and independent as you’d like to be, helping you achieve your goals.

What Our Patients Say

“I was referred for long COVID and Air Physio have been extremely helpful. I would highly recommend.”
Long COVID patient
“My physio was extremely helpful when I was experiencing breathing issues related to anxiety. She listened to my concerns very patiently and taught me exercises to control my breathing. I would very much recommend Air Physio’s approach to anyone experiencing similar issues.”
Breathing Pattern Re-education patient

“I have been having physio sessions with Air Physiotherapy for many months now and it is safe to say they have been nothing short of a revelation. The staff are not only super friendly and accommodating but extremely knowledgeable.”

Airway Clearance and Home visit patient

“I can’t thank Air Physio enough for helping me to finally sort out my breathing problems after a five month struggle with COVID-19. I was beginning to think that I would never be able to breathe normally again. I have gone from not being able to take a complete breath to running and hiking again.”

Long-COVID patient
“I would recommend going to see Air Physiotherapy if you are suffering from any kind of breathing pattern disorder, as the physios are excellent at what they do. I’ve seen many different doctors and none of them have been able to help me at all until I found Air Physiotherapy. Thank you!”

Breathing Pattern Re-education patient
“I recommend Air Physio to anyone with breathing issues, my physio was incredible! She not only told me the technique of how to manage my breathing issue and to get it better, she helped me truly understand how breathing works. On top of that she made me feel very comfortable and she is really down to earth.”
