Effects of respiration – Understanding Breathing – Learning Breathing Drills
In this short lecture, Tom Solecki, a chiropractic physician and educator who specializes in functional rehabilitation, covers respiration and some of the mechanics and effects of respiration on the musculoskeletal system. He discusses the biomechanics of breathing, how breathing is necessary for the exchange and perfusion of oxygen, and how it plays an integral role in stabilization of the spine.
“Proper core stabilization is necessary for all movements. Any deviation from the proper breathing, stability and motor systems strategy has a sequela throughout the entire musculoskeletal system.”~Tom Solecki
