Siân treats a variety of conditions and offers a range of treatments:
An initial assessment with Siân will involve an indepth discussion about your current condition and relevant medical history in your own home. If an assessment is not suitable in your own home then a clinic room can be arranged but this may increase your waiting time. There will then be a physical examination of the relevant problem area. Siân will bring a physiotherapy couch with her if required.
An initial assessment is normally about 30-45 minutes and may include treatment depending on the complexity of the problem. Please note that if the session runs over an hour the cost may increase.

Respiratory / chest physio
Respiratory physiotherapy is aimed at helping people with a variety of respiratory disorders. Siân's goals serving patients in the community are to help avoid chest infections and hospital admissions by helping to clear secretions, manage cough and improve breathing that affect daily life. This may be by optimising medication, inhaler technique, developing exercise regimes, breathing techniques or chest clearance techniques alongside other treatments. Siân is qualified as a non-medical prescriber within the respiratory field and can prescribe medication within her scope of practice.
- Sputum clearance
- Treatment of acute LRTI
- Inhaler technique
- Respiratory medication review
- Self management plans
- Breathlessness management
- Dysfunctional breathing
- Reduced exercise tolerance / exercise prescription
- NIV support

Due to patient's body asymmetry and reduced mobility they are at risk of LRTI and retained secretions which increases their risk of mortality.
