Dysfunctional Breathing Pattern

Hi All

Hope everybody is well!!!!

I went to have my chest checked today as i am back to work on Monday!! Its ok, still abit phlegmy which i'm trying to dispose of (not very lady like) He has refered me to a physio at our local health clinic as he says i have a dysfunctional breathing pattern. He said its very common with asthmatics.

Has anybody on here had it?

And does physio help?

Many thanks

  • i was told i had a dysfunctional breathin problem...that i didnt breathe properly...that my stomach goes in instead of out when i breathe in...ive now had 3 physio sessions nd have found it has realli helped...firstly i did breathin exercises then relaxation nd it has proved useful...in that i didnt hyperventilate during my recent attack...nd oxygen levels didnt drop as low

  • Thanks for your reply. It doesn't look as common as the doctor made out! LOL

    It will be interesting to see what they do.
