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

What is Pelvic Tilt ?

Movement in the spine and hip joint make it possible for the pelvis to be established in the variety of Positions. it may be inclined or tilted in anteroposterior directions, laterally or rotated. which is known as Pelvic Tilt.

Types of Pelvic tilt

  1. anteroposterior Tilt
  2. lateral tilting
  3. Rotation of Pelvis

1) Antero-posterior Tilt: 

pelvic tilt measurement is performed in three ways in the erect position. It is possible to measure the angle at which the imaginary line is drawn through the pubic symphysis and the lumbosacral angle in relation to the horizontal line. The pelvic tilt is said to be normal when the angle of the os pelvic tilt is between 50 ° and 60 ° when the anterior upper iliac spines and the symphysis pubis are in the same vertical plane. 

The angle is measured by a pelvic inclinometer. One arm of the inclinometer on the symphysis and the other on the PSIS. The normal range is 30 °. The increased angle of pelvic tilt may be referred to as forwarding tilting of the pelvic, and angle decrees are called backward tilting.

2) Lateral tilt: 

the pelvis can also be laterally tilted to one of the femoral heads. When the femur on which the pelvis is tilted is fixed as if it were standing on one leg, and the other leg is free to move, the pelvis is tilted laterally to bring the center of gravity over the base, thus maintaining the balance by removing or adducting the pelvis from the support point.

3) Pelvic rotation:

 it takes place in the transverse and vertical axis. When the swinging leg moves forward and backward on the supporting leg, pelvic rotation occurs. Walking is the best Pelvic rotation example.

What is Anatomical pulley? Example of Anatomical pulley

Understanding the Importance of Anatomical Pulleys in Physiotherapy As a physiotherapy student, it is essential to have a good understanding of the human body's anatomy and how it works. One of the essential structures in the body that plays a significant role in movement and biomechanics is the anatomical pulley. In this article, we will explore what an anatomical pulley is, its types, and its importance in physiotherapy. What is an Anatomical Pulley? A pulley is a simple mechanical machine that consists of a wheel that turns readily on the axle, usually grooved for a rope or a wire cable. In the human body, the pulley is replaced by a bone, cartilage, or ligament, and the cord is replaced by a muscle tendon. The tendon is lubricated by synovial fluid, and the surface of the tendon is covered by a thin visceral synovial membrane. The tendon is lubricated so that it may easily slide over the pulley. Classification of Anatomical Pulleys There are mainly four classes of pulleys

Electrotherapy Simplified by Basanta Kumar Nanda PDF Download

Electrotherapy Simplified  by Basanta Kumar Nanda The aim of this book is to focus on the electrotherapy simplified. Electrotherapy is one of the important aspects among the various approaches of patient management available to a physiotherapist. Electrotherapy Simplified has tried to give comprehensive knowledge on electrotherapy and actinotherapy, starting from basic electricity and magnetism to the theoretical and clinical aspects of the different modalities applied by physiotherapists.  This book consists of 19 chapters, which include an introduction, inflammation, repair, and role of physical agents, electrical fundamentals, magnetic energy, valves, transistors, and rectifiers, electrical measurement systems and distribution of electricity, electrophysiology of nerve transmission, and muscle contraction, low-frequency currents, electrodiagnosis, medium frequency currents, low-intensity laser therapy, ultraviolet radiation, and traction.  About 250 objective question answers have b

Base of Support (BOS) in Physiotherapy

The base of support means the area supported beneath the object. Whenever the base of support is more the stability will be more.  Greater the BOS lower the COG of any object. For example, the fundamental position of standing the BOS is lesser than the lying, so COG in the standing position it is in the higher level whereas in the lying posture it will be just near to the ground as a result lying posture is more stable than any other fundamental position and also it can be maintained for the longer period. The stability is directly proportional to BOS and inversely proportional to COG.
