How much do you know about breathing? You know we cannot survive without oxygen but is that all breathing is good for? You and your patients practice it 20,000 times a day yet we often pay it very little attention. Breathing is a simple yet profound means to influence how our clients move and perceive, reduce their symptoms, and often eliminate sources of dysfunction. By using the principles established in this course (such as position, exhalation, pause, and rhythmicity) you will be able to apply the basics of breathing in a rehabilitation setting to improve clients’ movements, calm their sensitive nervous systems, and begin to understand why breathing has been a central component of health practices dating thousand of years.
