Breathing Exercises: Types, Techniques and Benefits

Breathing Exercises: Exercises for the lungs also referred to as breathing exercises , are essential for improving lung function and promoting respiratory health. These exercises are intended to strengthen respiratory muscles, increase lung capacity, and enhance the body's ability to exchange oxygen and carbon dioxide. These breathing techniques are frequently used in medical settings: Diaphragmatic Breathing Pursed lip Breathing Segmental Breathing Diaphragmatic Breathing: The diaphragm , a dome-shaped muscle situated below the lungs, is used actively during diaphragmatic breathing, also referred to as deep belly breathing or abdominal breathing . By fully contracting the diaphragm, this technique focuses on expanding the lower part of the lungs, enabling deeper and more effective inhalation and exhalation. Technique: Look for a quiet location where you can sit or lie down. You can close your eyes to improve relaxation and focus. Put one hand on your upper chest and the other on

How to Perform Bridging Exercise?

The bridge exercise is a backbend, a core strengthener, and a balance pose all in one. Bridging exercise, a closed chain weight-bearing exercise, is an exercise that increases muscular strength of the hip extensors and promotes trunk stability. The bridge exercise is a great way to isolate and strengthen the gluteus (butt) muscles and hamstrings (back of the thigh).   If you do this exercise correctly, you also will find that it is good core stability and strength exercise that targets the abdominal muscles as well as the muscles of the lower back and hip. It's also known as the hip raise. It is often prescribed for patients with back pain and increases the activities of trunk stabilization muscles such as the internal oblique, external oblique, and erector spinal muscles. The bridge exercise is considered a basic rehab exercise to improve core and spinal stabilization. It's considered to be a safe exercise for those with back issues. If you sit all day,

Iliopsoas Iliacus and Iliopsoas Psoas major | Thigh Movers

Iliopsoas Iliacus also is known as the iliopsoas(Iliopsoas Iliacus + Iliopsoas Psoas major). this refers as two muscles which are separate in the abdomen but merges while inserted and thus known as the joint iliopsoas. Origin of the iliopsoas Iliopsoas originates from iliac fossa & crest, lateral sacrum separately. Iliopsoas Psoas major Originates from transverse processes of L1-L5, bodies & discs of T12-L5. Insertion of the iliopsoas The iliopsoas is inserted on the lesser trochanter of the femur as one tendon. The action of the iliopsoas The iliopsoas( Iliopsoas Iliacus + Iliopsoas Psoas major ) is the prime mover of thigh flexion.iliopsoas is also responsible for lateral flexion of the vertebral column(psoas). Nerve Supply of the iliopsoas The iliopsoas is supplied with Femoral nerve (L2-L4) (Iliacus), Anterior rami of sacral plexus (L1-L3 ) (Psoas major). Ili

Sartorius | Thigh muscles

The sartorius muscle is a thin, long, superficial muscle in the anterior compartment of the thigh. It runs down the length of the thigh, runs over 2 joints—hip and knee joints and is the longest muscle in the human body. muscle has a twisted position in the body. Sartorius passes behind the medial condyle of the femur to end in a tendon. The tendon sartorius, after taking an anterior curve joins with the tendon of the Gracilis and Semitendinosus in the pes anserinus before its final insertion. Origin of Sartorius : Satorius originates anterior superior iliac spine. Insertion: Satorius is inserted on the medial aspect of the proximal tibia. Actions of Sartorius:  Sartorius flexes, abducts & laterally rotates the thigh. Sartorius also flexes knee (weak flexor).  Nerve Supply:  it is supplied by Femoral nerve. Arterial Supply: The sartorius muscle receives blood supply from superficial circumflex iliac, lateral femoral, deep femoral, descending geniculate, and f
