Pneumothorax occurs when air leaks between the lungs and the chest wall. In short, when air escapes from the lungs.

Respiratory physiotherapy can help recovery from this disease by improving lung re-expansion, performing diaphragmatic exercises and costal expansion exercises as well as drainage techniques with the aim of eliminating any fluid that may have remained.
