Dysfunctional breathing can lead to musculoskeletal complaints, an increased perception of pain as well as influence the function of the heart, pelvic floor, bowels and bladder. Tania Clifton-Smith will take you through a series of courses to better understand breathing, breathing patterns and disorders, as well as how to assess and optimise breathing in your patients.

How We Breathe

Breathing is one of our most crucial functions and is essential to our health. However, while it is necessary for survival, our breathing pattern is often disrupted. This disruption has a negative impact on a number of systems, including our biomechanics, biochemistry and even psychophysiology. Thus, the way we breathe is relevant to all areas of physiotherapy. This course introduces the basics of how we breathe, as well as exploring the history, definition and epidemiology of breathing pattern disorders.

The Science of Breathing Well

Optimal breathing patterns help to maintain homeostasis. When breathing is disrupted, significant issues can arise. Physiotherapists are well placed to assess and treat breathing pattern disorders and it is necessary to understand the science behind optimal breathing in order to recognise and manage the symptoms that occur with dysfunctional breathing. This course introduces the science of breathing well and explores why this pattern can be disrupted.
