Optimal breathing patterns help to maintain homeostasis in the body, but when breathing is disrupted, significant issues can arise. 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.

Great way of learning or improving your learning, particularly as a physiotherapy student, the resources and quizzes challenge my current knowledge and is a great way to test my learning, and expose me to areas of physio treatment or methods I did not know of before.
