      Is percussion therapy a part of your routine? Something you do only when you’re sick?

      I will admit, it is something that SHOULD be a part of my daily routine but I falter.

      Percussion therapy is performed to loosen mucous in your lungs and assist with coughing. If there is no mucous in your lungs, it is still a great preventative tool to keep your airways open.

      Recently, one of my coworkers here at SMA News Today, Michael, had an upper respiratory infection and needed percussion therapy to have a more productive cough. In this article, his physical therapy assistant explains the regimen she and Michael followed to help beat the infection which included using a cough assist and percussion therapy in his wheelchair. Because Michael was having difficulty breathing lying down, they adapted to circumstances and worked directly from his wheelchair.

      Get the full scoop, pictures included, here.
