Our chiropractor Kathryn demonstrates in this video abdominal breathing.
We have treated many patients suffering from neck pains, headaches and shoulder pains over the years and that is one thing that many have in common: A faulty breathing technique.
Many people, especially young women, have a tendency take shallow breaths, using their chests mainly to breathe. Chest breathing can create a lot of neck stiffness or tension because of incorrect use of the muscles. Breathing correctly can help with neck pains, tension headaches and is also very useful as a general relaxation tool.
