Event Description

How do the muscular structures of the upper back impact and affect our ability to breath and vice versa.  In this workshop we will be looking at how accessory muscles of respiration through the neck, upper back and thorax, create diaphragmatic space and change the way we breath.

We will cover some theory in relation to oxygen exchange and address certain conditions where muscular activity might be a major element in breath, such as COPD.  We will look at the lungs and the space they occupy in the thorax and the fascia of the diaphragm as well as their tails.  This will also lead us nicely in to stabilisation of the diaphragm via the psoas and QL.
