'Mild' bronchial asthma attacks can result in neck and shoulder tensions - what's new?

'Mild' bronchial asthma attacks can result in increased levels of neck and shoulder tensions. Often people use teir inhalors to get them through the worst of their attacks but  afterwards are left feeling like they have been 'dragged through a hedge backwards'. A more technical analysis of this feeling often reveals increased levels of neck and shoulder tension and soreness. This increased tension level is often associated with 'fixed inspiration' patterns of breathing following the asthma attack.

 

Michael Comfort our osteopath is keen to treat people for their neck and shoulder tensions following mild bronchial asthma attacks. He says 'following a mild brochial asthma episode there is much work an osteopath can do including soft tissue techniques (specififc massage) around someone's neck and shoulders to reduce soreness. Then it's on with sternal inhibition, thoracic cage mobility and encouraging diaphragmatic respiration (all ways of loosening your breathing up). I find that if you come and see me soon after a 'mild' asthma episode these tried and tested techniques can get you feeling back to normal much more quickly.'
