Book Description

This authoritative, research-based book, written by a team of clinical experts, offers an introduction to the symptoms and causes of disordered breathing as well as the strategies and protocols that can be used to correct and restore normal breathing. Multidisciplinary Approaches to Breathing Pattern Disorders guides readers through a discussion of the current research that links disordered breathing patterns with perceived pain levels, fatigue, stress and anxiety. Basic mechanics, physiology, and biochemistry of normal breathing are outlined to lay a foundation for understanding causes and mechanics of disordered breathing. Self-help strategies with charts and workbook pages that may be photocopied as handouts are designed to help patients overcome specific breathing problems.

Product Description


"...this far-reaching book covers everything one would wish to learn about breathing pattern disorders - I feel it is an essential source of reference and information to all health professionals working in this area...I would urge everyone interested in the subject to place an order..."

Anne Pitman MCSP SRP, Manual Therapy, October 2002 "The whole book is well illustrated and referenced, provides practical case examples and sensible cautions..I cannot think of anything they have left out.” Ashley Conway. Journal of Holistic Healthcare: Volume 4 Issue 4 November 2007

Patients with common psychological dysfunction including anxiety, low mood and depression, sleep disorder, chronic low energy syndromes etc., all can respond well when the breath cycle is identified and adapted by cognitive processes.

This text is the most comprehensive of its kind and the clinical application of the content so broadly based it deserves a wide readership.

Donald Scott, Osteopath, UK

This is an extremely well-detailed book and I love how it explores all areas of breathing i.e. the psychological, emotional and physical elements of the process.

Eva Au Zveglic, Specialised Respiratory Physiotherapist, UK

This book will appeal to anyone with an interest in breathing from whatever discipline they belong to.

Anne Pitman, Physiotherapy, Devonshire Place, London, UK

As the current title suggests, I feel the book appropriately covers multidisciplinary management strategies of BPD which is an extremely important aim given that the disorder is so complex with multiple aetiologies and no single assessment or treatment tool.

Kate Bazin. Physiotherapist, UK

Breathing is an overlooked part of human function. We need more information about breathing as it is such an important prerequisite for the normal functioning of so many other body systems.

Ken Crenshaw, Head Athletic Trainer of the Arizona Diamondbacks Baseball Team, USA

As clinical practitioners we must always be aware of causation, maintaining and exacerbating factors. Abnormal breathing has the ability to be all three of these.

T. Hewetson, Lecturer in Osteopathy, Oxford, UK

This is not a perfect all-encompassing textbook.That was not its purpose. As a catalyst for stimulating further exploration and for use as a reference in clinical work of wide-ranging paradigms it succeeds admirably.

David Propert, British School of Osteopathy, UK, International Journal of Osteopathic Medicine (August 2014)

As a clinical psychologist I found the multi-disciplinary approach incredibly helpful. Clear, well-organised and accessible even to those who don't have a background in respiratory physiology.
