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.


This course aims to introduce the science of breathing well and explain why this pattern can be disrupted and how to optimise it.
