Improper breathing affects your energy levels, creates tension and can increase anxiety.
NeuroStructural Dysfunction affecting the upper cervical spine and upper back – also known as Forward Head Syndrome – can put pressure on the heart and lungs, impair the nerve function of the diaphragm, inflame the sinuses, and disrupt the brain’s ability to naturally regulate the breath.
This can manifest as Secondary Conditions such as shallow breaths, gasping breaths, “forgetting to breathe,” chronic coughing, allergies, increased incidence of seasonal colds and flu, exercise induced asthma, chest congestion, and snoring. Breathing problems can be very frustrating because breathing is a fundamental part of life.
Common solutions for breathing problems include allergy medication, inhalers, and CPAP machines, but if the difficulty breathing is due to a NeuroStructural Dysfunction, the results may be limited and culminate in decreased breathing capacity over time.
If you’re looking for help with your breathing difficulties, our approach is to assess for and, if present, correct the underlying NeuroStructural Dysfunction behind the difficulty breathing and other Secondary Conditions. Our approach also uniquely helps the nervous system better adapt to future stress, decreasing the need to develop future difficulty breathing. When we get to the root of things, you can resolve the challenges and live an amazing life.
