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

Bodyweight workout in just 25 minutes !

I'm always asked the questions as a Physiotherapist: 

When is the best time to work out?
Do I need to work out in the morning?
Do I need to work out after work?
Should I exercise outside the gym?

Truth is, it depends on the person, really. But here are three reasons why it's a great option to fit in a 25 minute bodyweight workout that can be done anywhere.

  1.  Time It can be difficult to find the time to work out, but if you can find only 25 minutes in your day, you'll be in great shape!
  2. Life can get in the way and daily life is easy to prioritize over working out. I'm here to encourage you to work out your workout time, just 25 minutes is all that takes. Staying active far outweighs the cost of failing to make healthy happen.
  3.  Location This one is important, I can write a whole blog post on why I think it's important to go to the gym, but the bottom line is this: what's important is working out – not where you do it.

Select 25 minutes, and get the most out of it. This is your chance, then!

25-Minute Bodyweight Workout These exercises perform at a moderate pace and with limited rest.

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

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.
