Physiotherapy and Diaphragmatic Breathing

What is Diaphragmatic Breathing ?

Bismillahirahmanirahim , For today I want post some of the simple exercise that will give you a lot of benefit for your brain , lungs , heart and bodies . It Call diaphragmatic breathing.

What is Diaphragmatic breathing ?
For your understanding this Diaphragmatic breathing helps you to breathe more easily and uses less
energy. People with lung disease often have enlarged lungs because air gets trapped in the lungs. Diaphragmatic breathing helps get the stale, trapped air out of your lungs.

Anatomy of Diaphragm ?
The diaphragm is a large curved muscle separating your lungs from your abdomen. The studies shows   It does about 80% of the work of breathing. Normally, when your diaphragm lowers, your lungs expand and your abdomen pushes out. When your diaphragm rises, your abdomen moves in, and you lungs relax and empty


Why your breathing become poor ?
Lung disease often causes the diaphragm to flatten and become weak. This causes you to use accessory muscles to breathe. These muscles are found in the upper chest, neck and along the ribs. Using these muscles is less effective than using your diaphragm because it takes more
energy and this requires more oxygen.


What you need to do?
Diaphragmatic breathing will help strengthen your diaphragm and abdominal
muscles. Using this breathing technique along with pursed lip breathing will
help get more of the stale air out of your lungs.

The hand on your stomach moves in as you breathe out. Another tips  You may need to pull in your stomach muscles at first to help move your diaphragm up. Exhale or breathe out at least twice as long as you inhale or breathe in.
