Acute bronchitis, also known as a chest cold, is a short-term inflammation of the respiratory tract, especially the bronchial tree, which includes the lungs’ large and medium-sized airways. Coughing is the most common symptom. Coughing up mucus, wheezing, shortness of breath, fever, and chest pain are some of the other symptoms. It’s normally a side effect of a common cold or flu. Acute bronchitis typically goes away within 10 days to several weeks after it starts. This sets it apart from chronic bronchitis, which is a permanent illness. Once you’ve recovered from bronchitis, you should get a massage.

NOT DURING THE ADVANCED STAGE! Massage is not advised during the acute stage of bronchitis, but it is necessary after the illness has passed.
After Recuperation: Intercostals, diaphragm, trapezius, levator scapula, rhomboids, latissimus dorsi, serratus anterior, erector spinae, deltoids, and Rotator Cuff receive general massage therapy.
Neck, chest, and shoulder facial technique • Pectoralis major and deltoid treatment, grip stretch / GTO to pectoralis major • Pectoralis minor, subclavius, biceps, and triceps massage with Ischemic compressions, muscle stripping • Mild joint play
Treatment for Bronchitis/Chest Cold: • Rest, fluids, and soft, humid air • Antibiotics only for bacterial infections
Bronchodilators and cough suppressants may help with symptoms, but they don’t help with healing.
Chronic Bronchitis is a lung disease characterised by long-term bronchial inflammation that results in permanent changes in the bronchial lining.
