It’s All in How You Breathe…

Post by Brian Yee PT, MPhty, OCS, FAAOMPT

Here’s a link by a well known Physical Therapist, Mike Reinold, which was passed onto me, that discusses the role of breathing and its correlation with low back pain. Many people think core strength for spinal stability is simply done by your abdominal muscles, but your diaphragm and respiratory patterns are also shown to help improve spinal stability.

This article goes into further detail to discuss how a study has shown that people without low back pain tend to inhale slightly at the time of lifting an object, where people with chronic low back pain tend to exhale.

The staff at Motion Stability are versed in breathing recruitment techniques that can help stabilize your spine. Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions.
