This week’s featured read “Chest Mobilization Techniques for Improving Ventilation and Gas Exchange in Chronic Lung Disease” is a chapter from a book that Ron brought to me a couple weeks ago to add to the PRI Resource Center. This chapter, written by Donrawee Leelarungrayub from Thailand provides a great overview of the biomechanical considerations of the ribcage and thoracic spine. In addition, the author cited a 2008 case study published by PRC therapist Holly Spence in his discussion of the effectiveness of chest wall mobilization programs.

In addition to being filed in the PRI Resource Center, we have also added it to the reference material for the Postural Respiration course!
