Today we are talking all about the breath – something that every single one of our clients does as an involuntary automatic function of the body. But how is it impacting on their daily occupations?
In this podcast episode we dive into how we can assess a clients’ breathing, why this is even important, what dysfunctional breathing looks like and how this can impact on their occupational engagement and participation, strategies to support clients with dysfunctional breathing and how we can retrain people to breath in a way that supports their health and well-being.
I couldn’t be more excited to dive into this topic with Kate Broderick, a qualified Speech Pathologist and an Occupational Therapist (can you believe it?!). Kate is fascinated by the breath and her passion for this topic is clearly evident! Kate the founder of SPOT Therapy Hub a speech therapy and occupational therapy practice in Sydney Australia.
