Common Misconceptions About Breathing

Did you know that traditional medical, therapy and alternative health professionals are often taught incorrect ways of how breathing should look, feel, and sound? When I watch key anatomy teaching films I observe that the models and animations do not allow for optimal breathing balance and sequencing.

To date in 2005, the illness model of allopathic medicine has not studied healthy optimal breathing. The epidemiological studies of breathing norms are cross sectional (lumping several people together and taking averages) when in fact breathing MUST be studied longitudinal or on an individual basis only. Human living models (cadavers can not begin to perform as living functional humans) are too often partially or severely dysfunctional representations of what healthy breathing is supposed to be.

The transition or segue from anatomy (form) to physiology (function) allows for confusions as to exactly how a series of muscles, nerves, tendons, connective tissues must sequence with each other to allow for optimal breathing. Especially when these sequences involve hundreds of interrelated functions with dozens to hundreds of opposing and overlapping muscles from the front, back sides, top and bottom of our pelvis, trunk, neck and head.

This can easily mislead the student to think that certain muscle functions are normal when in fact they may be quite unhealthy. After all, we breathe from 5,000 to 20,000 times daily. So even a small irregularity can magnify many times when repeated often enough.

For example: A popular anatomy DVD series used by thousands of schools talks about the scalenes raising the first rib on the inhale. This is actually a sign of what I call Unbalanced Dysfunctional Breathing or UDB.  Others canonize the transversus abdominus with leads many into serious trouble breathing wise. There are other muscle sequences that indicate UDB that when discovered make an assessment extremely productive in helping solve a developing or actual breathing problem and or a related malady exacerbated by that breathing problem.
