Jason Masek, MSPT, ATC, CSCS, PRC found this excellent article; Breathing pattern disorders and physiotherapy: inspiration for our profession.
An interesting summary from this article reads:
“Currently in western medicine, a fundamental push is to encourage healthy life style skills. Education in one of the most fundamental tools, and yet breathing has not been emphasized enough as part of this healthy lifestyle package. For the clinician the observation of breathing can provide insight into many systems, including biomechanics, biochemistry/physiology, and psychology reflecting the consideration of a multisystem approach.”
