CHEST PERCUSSION THERAPY TESTIMONIALS
Chest Percussion Therapy is a proven technique that achieves superior results.
Our patients benefit from our skilled respiratory therapists that provide caring, effective treatment for our CF patients.
Here are a few of the testimonials we receive every day.
I truly believe that without CPT I would not be alive today. I went from being on oxygen 24/7 to only two or three times a year. It is not just about the therapy itself, but also the personal attention and care I received from my respiratory therapist that motivated me to take better care of myself.

Of all the benefits of treatments in Cystic Fibrosis, the most beneficial in fighting the disease is manual CPT. It should ALWAYS be INCLUDED in treatment.
Sue, 3 Grandchildren with CF
Grandparent of CF patients (4, 6 & 7 years old)
We have found manual CPT delivered by an RT (respiratory technician) in the CF patient’s home to be an important part of our airway clearance Arsenal. It is meant to complement rather than replace VEST therapy. In addition to the airway clearance itself the home visits motivate the patient and help with compliance.
Daniel Layish, MD
I like being able to receive treatment from home. Under 30 minutes makes treatments convenient and comforting. I also like the fact that with CPT we can incorporate postural drainage in the different lying positions.
Robert, 35 years old
Patient and RN
Manual therapy has helped me daily from keeping the mucus from building in my lungs. As you get older manual therapy has been far more effective than say a vest. Manual therapy is more powerful and is able to adapt to the exact areas of the lungs that may be junked up. Sometimes my left lung is full of mucus and we are able to focus on that area more than the others. Also say something comes up and I have to cancel my therapy for a day, that next day is horrible and I will cough the majority of the day trying to get the extra days build up out.
Christine, 39 years old
Having CPT on a daily basis has helped greatly. I’m able to breathe better, cough up the mucus that builds easier and function as normal as possible.
Vanessa, 25 years old
CPT is so very important for my treatment care. Home CPT makes compliance with my routine much simpler and takes the weight off my shoulders. The staff and entire team are incredible, nice and caring. They put the patient first and treat you like family! I couldn’t ask for a better CPT!
Sally, 27 years old
Our son has received home CPT since he was 6 months old. He has remained very healthy and had his first hospitalization at age 14.
Mother of 15 year old
Regular home CPT has kept me healthy and has cut down on my hospital admissions. Having home CPT allows me to control who comes into my environment. Many times I am tired. Home CPT means I don't have to go out and get help. It also gives me privacy when I have a treatment, and helps me to be relaxed and comfortable when I am coughing up a lot of mucus.

No other method has made me clear anywhere near as much as CPT.

Our therapist... can even pick up a few days extra before they start sounding sick. We would NEVER give up our therapist!

Chest Physical Therapy Services is life changing. I enjoy the personalized care I get from my therapist and the reassurance on how my breathing is and what I can do to improve it, plus I don't have to worry about going to an office and getting sick and/or getting other CF patients sick.
