Manual Techniques Used with Postural Drainage

In addition to the use of body positioning, deep breathing, and an effective cough to facilitate airway clearance, a variety of manual techniques are used in conjunction with postural drainage to maximize the effectiveness of the mucociliary transport system.

They include-
  • percussion
  • vibration
  • shaking
  • rib springing
Findings from studies that have been implemented to evaluate the efficacy of these manual techniques as adjucts to postural drainage are inconclusive.
