Treatment techniques include:

  • Learning to expand different sections of the lungs.
  • Learning how to breathe using your diaphragm.
  • Learn how to nasal breathe.
  • Using devices to help basal expansion such as “The Flutter” device
  • Relaxed breathing exercises

Positioning

To help expand different areas of the lungs.

To help rid the lungs of excess secretions.

To relax the body and thus the breathing. This can help asthmatics who become anxious and thus increase their chance of an asthma attack.
