A Case Study on Breathing Rehabilitation in a 32-year-old Male with Dysfunctional Breathing
Keywords:Breathing pattern disorder, Breathing retraining, Dysfunctional breathing, Hyperventilation, Stress
Despite having a significant impact on the personal, psychological, and social dimensions of a person’s health, health professionals’ emphasis on the epidemiological, pathological, and physiological basis of the dysfunctional breathing, therefore, fails to provide patients with an appropriate treatment. Given the multifarious and psychophysiological nature of dysfunctional breathing, a holistic and multidimensional management would seem the most appropriate way to manage such a prevalent condition This case study presents a holistic approach to comprehensively manage dysfunctional breathing. That being the case, interventions for four key domains — biochemical aspects, biomechanical aspects, psychosocial aspects, and respiratory symptoms — were provided. It was obvious from the outcome findings that dysfunctional breathing can only be successfully understood by relating it to the person’s life experiences including their, beliefs, values, emotions, influences, and social relations.
