Physical Therapist Questions Asthma

What are the lung exercises you would recommend for an asthma patient?

My daughter is 13 years old and is severely asthmatic. I am considering physiotherapy to strengthen her lungs. What exercises would you recommend in this condition?

There are a number of diaphragmatic exercises to help improve her breathing but without seeing her in person, I would not be comfortable in getting too specific in my prescription. See your local physio and they would be able to get her the specific exercises she requires.
