Cystic Fibrosis

Cystic Fibrosis (CF) is a genetic disease affecting children and young adults which affects the lungs and digestive system. Children and youth may experience persistent coughing, wheezing, breathlessness, poor weight gain and growth and abnormal stool.

Physiotherapists can help your children breathe easier using a variety of airway clearance techniques to help clear the lungs of mucus and allow air to pass.
