Respiratory Clinic

Helping you breathe better

The high-quality research undertaken in the School of Sport and Exercise Sciences feeds into the work of the Respiratory Clinic, which means our advice and support reflects the latest developments in the field.   

Run by world-leading experts, we provide state-of-the art testing and customised solutions for athletes with respiratory issues.  

The Respiratory Clinic provides assessment of breathing before, during and after exercise. You are then given a programme specific to your needs, which will reduce or eliminate respiratory symptoms during exercise.

Testing for Exercise Induced Asthma

The clinic focuses on testing and assessments for exercise-related breathing problems including Exercise Induced Asthma (EIA). 

EIA, if undiagnosed, can limit an athlete's performance and affect their health but many athletes are unaware that they have the condition. 

At our clinic, we offer the 'gold standard' test for EIA. Once we have made a diagnosis, we guide clients through well-established treatment paths, which allow them to exercise and compete without any limitations. 

We also offer an EIA screening service, where we take our mobile EVH challenge equipment to a training venue and can screen up to 15 athletes in four hours.

Disordered Breathing Patterns

Disordered Breathing Patterns (DBP) are common during exercise, especially when athletes are working at high intensity. DBP during exercise can result in the athletes feeling short of breath, tight chested and experience early onset of fatigue. Many athletes with DBP may or may not have other breathing problems like asthma.

Our respiratory clinic experts have been helping athletes overcome DBP for over 15 years. Our wealth of experience has helped us develop a number of bespoke assessments and tools to identify and help athletes overcome DBP. Our work has supported countless athletes overcome DBP and go on to achieve personal best performances and win World, Olympic and Paralympic titles.

If you think you might have DBP please contact us to arrange a consultation. Prices and contact details are below.
