Professor. John Dickinson is an Exercise Respiratory Physiologist with a specialism in assessing exercise respiratory symptoms in athletes. He has tested over 1,000 elite athletes from a range of sports including all Olympic and many professional sports, such as rugby and Premier League football.
The Respiratory Clinic provides a range of diagnostic tests for exercise induced asthma, including the Eucapnic Voluntary Hyperpnoea (EVH) challenge – considered by the World Anti – Doping Agency and the International Olympic Committee to be the ‘gold standard’ challenge to diagnose exercise induced asthma in elite athletes.
Once an individual has been diagnosed with asthma/EIA, well established treatment pathways will usually result in full control of the disease and no limitation to an individual’s capacity to exercise and take part in high level sport.
The specialists at Respiratory Clinic have developed a unique respiratory programme for those elite athletes who experience respiratory symptoms during exercise that are not explained by respiratory disease. The programme combines a focus on breathing techniques, posture work and inspiratory muscle training and has proven success in reducing and eliminating respiratory symptoms during exercise.
