Proper Respiratory Patterns & Breathing

by | May 2, 2019

Breathing is something that we do everyday that effects how we feel and most of ups don’t even know it. Dysfunctional breathing can contriute to problems of overall health and neuromusculoskeletal problems. Poor breathing can be related to problems with motor control and movement, balance and even decreasedthresholds of pain. There are several schools of thought in yoga, meditation and martial arts on how to breathe properly depending on the focus. There are many components to proper breathing and one type of type or assessment will not be complete, but there are steps that people can take to get an idea if their breathing is dysfunctional. Take a look at the video below to get an idea if you are breathing properly while at rest. 

People that have dysfunctional breathing  generally have a hard time regulating core musculature as well. This means that it can contribute to issues related to stabilization and support of the lumbar spine. Abdominal muscles that help with proper breathing are actually some of the same muscles that make up the core. Imbalances in the muscles of the neck, shoulder, spine and pelvis can occur in part due to breathing pattern problems. People that have tenderness in the muscles of the neck and upper back often have issues related to breathing. 

If you are interested in the breathing assessment forms that I mentioned in the video, click on the form below to download it. Fill out the questionnaire to determine if you might have problems with breathing dysfunction.
