Symptoms of COPD:
- Increasing breathlessness during day to day activities
- A persistent chesty cough
- Frequent chest infections and/or chest tightness
- Persistent wheezing, especially in cold weather
These symptoms can slowly become worse without proper COPD treatment.
The primary cause of COPD (both emphysema and bronchitis) is smoking cigarettes, alongside regular exposure to tobacco smoke. Other causes include air pollution, such as dust and fumes, as well as infectious diseases and acquired genetic problems.
Middle-aged or older people who smoke are at a higher risk of getting COPD. Breathing problems start to become worse with the passage of time; however, different treatments and a change of lifestyle can help you control this condition.
There is no cure for the root cause of COPD, but with an effective COPD treatment you can control your COPD symptoms.
Massage therapy can be an effective COPD treatment. Massaging the rib cage can improve shortness of breath, increase oxygen in the blood, build up respiratory muscles, reduce the flow of stress hormones, and improve pulmonary functions.
NHC Cyclo-Therapy’s massaging action provides a gentle but penetrating massage which helps mobilise congestion in the airways to improve chest clearance for easier breathing and reduced chest tightness.
