It is an inflammation of the bronchial mucosa due to a chemical cause (use of toxic or infectious products, etc.).
The airways become inflamed and there is an increase in secretions.
It is considered a chronic disease because the symptoms have been with the patient for months or even years.
How does physical therapy help in chronic bronchitis?
Respiratory physiotherapy helps to drain secretions, open alveoli to achieve a good gas exchange and also, improve ventilation as well as the respiratory pattern.
