Could your breathing be the missing link to decreasing pain and moving better?

Something we all do 20,000+ times a day…but rarely consciously think about it. When was the last time you went to your Doctor or PT for any sort of orthopedic issue and they assessed your breathing pattern?

Did you know pain anywhere in the body could potentially be linked to your breathing pattern? Clients will come to me after seeing other practitioners without success and when I ask if their breathing pattern has been accessed…99% of the time they say no! Breathing is the first thing we do when we are born and something we have to do to survive. Unfortunately 99% of use have messed it up over the years (often subconsciously) and this could be part of the underlying reason clients have symptoms.

Our breathing pattern is linked to our core which is our foundation to move from. An inefficient breathing pattern can lead to postural issues, muscular imbalances and compensations which over time can put people at risk for injuries and pain.

I ask all my patients if they have a history of pain, trauma, surgeries, stomach issues, asthma, anxiety and/or stress because all these things can cause someone to subconsciously change their breathing and go into a more “fight or flight mode”. Which can alter core stability and lead to compensations throughout the body.

If you have a history of any of the above, tightness, stubborn aches/pain or just want to move and feel better – Let’s take a deeper look at how you breath and stabilize. This can be done in the office or virtually so click below to chat!
