BIOMECHANICS OF BREATHING IN MSK PATIENTS – via zoom live streaming from 19TH JULY 2020 (postponed from 5th July) FROM 2-5PM South Africa TIME.
With Mandy Röscher – BSc Physiotherapy (WITS); Physiotherapy Clinician and Lecturer
Mandy has a passion for teaching and has given a variety of lectures, particularly on Pain Neurophysiology, Pain Neuroscience Education and Communication. Mandy supervises and lectures on the SAOMT Course and is the current national co-ordinator for the Advanced Neuromusculoskeletal Course (previously OMT Course). She is a co-owner of her own private physio practice in KZN
The Diaphragm is the primary breathing muscle. In chronic pain patients, breathing biomechanics are often altered with a more apical pattern dominating. This lack of recruitment of the diaphragm can have far reaching consequences.
BIOMECHANICS OF BREATHING IN MSK PATIENTS – via zoom live streaming – 19TH JULY 2020 FROM 2-5PM SA TIME.
With Mandy Röscher
• Physiology and Biomechanics of Breathing
• Physiological Effects of Slow Breathing
• Importance of Nose Breathing
• Chronic Hyperventilation and Hypocapnia
• Assessment of Breathing in musculoskeletal pain patients
• Re-education of Breathing for musculoskeletal pain patients
By the end of this module the learner will be able to:
• Explain the physiological processes and anatomical structures involved in breathing
• Explain the physiological effect of slow, diaphragmatic breathing
• Explain why nose breathing is important
• Understand the correlation between chronic hyperventilation and hypocapnia and the consequences to the musculoskeletal system as a result
• Assess a musculoskeletal patient for breathing dysfunction
• Implement a breathing re-education programme in musculoskeletal patients
Take Home Message
Breathing dysfunction has physiological effects on a variety of body systems. Being able to identify and manage breathing dysfunctions in your MSK patients may be the missing link in managing those difficult patients that just aren’t getting better.
