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 playing different games make your muscles strong?

Participation in regular exercise or training for six weeks, around three times a week will lead to the adaptation of body systems that are used or trained. In that type of exercise or sport, this has the effect of increasing performance and is often beneficial for general health and everyday life. 

How playing different games make your muscles strong? 

The Answer is When you are participating in various playing activities your entire human body systems take part in it either fully or partially. but when it comes to muscles and strength let's see what effect you will have after exercising in long run.

Long term effects of exercise

  • Cardiovascular system: Cardiac hypertrophy; increased stroke volume (SV); decrease in resting heart rate (HR); increase in maximum cardiac output (Q); capitalization at the lungs and muscles; increase in the number of red blood cells
  • Respiratory system: Increased number of functioning alveoli; increased strength of the respiratory muscles
  • Energy system: Increased production of energy from the aerobic energy system; increased tolerance to lactic acid
  • Muscular system: Muscle hypertrophy, A noticeable long-term impact of exercise is the increase in muscle mass due to exercise, especially weight training.; increased strength of tendons; increased strength of ligaments
  • Skeletal system: Increase in bone density
  • Fitness: Increase in strength; increase in flexibility; increase in speed; increase in muscular endurance

Aerobic exercise, or physical activity under conditions of high availability of oxygen, involves extended exercise periods at levels below the maximum strength of contraction and uses a high percentage of muscle fibers of type I.

Due to exercise type, primarily the availability (aerobic) or lack of availability (anaerobic) of oxygen, muscle metabolism differs. The relative contributions of these energy systems determine the rate at which energy is required. 

 Anaerobic respiration, or physical activity with low oxygen availability, involves muscle contractions of high intensity for short periods of time, primarily utilizing muscle fibers of type II.
Anaerobic exercise involves short, high-intensity exercise bouts that use little or no oxygen and lead to increased lactic acid concentrations.

The metabolism of the muscle differs due to the type of exercise, mainly due to the availability (aerobic) of oxygen inaccessibility (anaerobic).

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.
