Recognizing and treating breathing disorders – Physiopedia Interview with Leon Chaitow
An in-depth, 50-minute interview with Leon Chaitow by the creators of the Physiospot website. The interview focuses on the very important but not widely understood subject of breathing disorders. These are breathing dysfunctions (as opposed to breathing pathologies such as COPD etc) that affect a significant and potentially growing proportion of the population and can often led to muscloskeletal symptoms. In this interview Leon describes how he was made aware of these problems through a very personal experience of the extremely serious symptoms such a breathing disorder can cause. He goes on talk about his latest book on this topic and to highlight the importance for physical therapists/physiotherapists to recognise patients with breathing disorders, to educate their patients about how poor breathing can cause and exacerbate other symptoms and also to offer appropriate treatment and advice.
