Savannah Chiropractor Explains How Poor Breathing Can Affect Health

January 24, 2020 - /PressAdvantage/ - Savannah, Georgia based Arrowhead Clinic is reaching out to the community to discuss how a poor breathing technique can affect their health and how their quality of life can improve by practicing deep breathing. Learn more here: Arrowhead Clinic Savannah.

While breathing is an activity that usually does not require much thought, as it comes naturally for any form of life in one way or another, the chiropractors of the Arrowhead Clinic have published a new blog entry that challenges this piece of common knowledge. According to their experts, the way someone breathes can have a deep and meaningful impact on their health. Beyond this, they assert that most of the population has been breathing incorrectly for their entire lives, taxing their body and placing unnecessary stress on their systems. While this is hard to believe, these are the claims that the center’s chiropractors make on their new blog entry, titled, "Does The Way I Breathe Affect My Health?"

Dr. Roy Vogel, a practitioner of the local chiropractor clinic, states, "Maybe it's something you've never thought of if you are in the gross of the population, but the way you breathe does have a significant effect on your health. If you are among the majority of the population, it is very likely that you have never even thought about the possibility of there being multiple breathing techniques, let alone consider the fact that you have been breathing incorrectly for your entire life."

Dr. Vogel notes that, while this is typically not an issue nor something that should be a common point of concern for any given person, adopting healthier breathing techniques can have a significant effect on an individual’s life. With only a few minutes a day, these breathing techniques can have a meaningful impact on both their physical and mental health, reducing the stress placed on their body and bestowing other positive benefits. "If you practiced any other activity daily like running or swimming as you do breathing, you would have already researched into the most effective way to do it," says Dr. Vogel, adding that, since it is just breathing and it comes naturally, most people stick with what they have done since birth without researching further.

As the Arrowhead Clinic outlines in their article, most people limit their breathing to the chest, reducing their oxygen intake and adding unnecessary tension to their diaphragm. This can lead to tightness around the person's aorta and restrict movement around their large bowel, potentially leading to high blood pressure and constipation. Over time, this leads to overuse of the person's accessory muscles when they breathe, relying heavily on their neck and shoulders. This causes fatigue and leads to pain and tiredness, caused by no apparent reason. This is an issue that is further emphasized in individuals with impaired breathing, such as those suffering from asthma or emphysema.

"We have seen countless patients come in experiencing these symptoms, being extremely fatigued at the end of the day for no apparent reason and having muscle soreness without working out," says Dr. Vogel. "Pinpointing the source of these symptoms can be hard, and most people are skeptical when we mention that it may have something to do with their breathing technique, but we also have the research and knowledge to back up our perspective."

The Savannah chiropractor states that, once they deem a patient's discomfort to be caused by their breathing technique, improving their condition is a relatively easy endeavor. Deep breathing exercises are the most common way to reduce their tiredness, fatigue and muscle aches, as a few minutes of practice a day will have a meaningful impact on several aspects of a patient's life. Beyond reducing their fatigue and muscle stress, these exercises also help reduce anxiety and emotional stress. The chiropractic center also believes that it helps protect the back and promotes healthier sitting and standing postures.

Further information on breathing techniques and how they can affect a person's health can be found on the center’s website. Interested parties can also reach out to Dr. Rachel Banks of Arrowhead Clinic to follow up on any further inquiries they may have.

Judge: No slander in Alec Baldwin's comments on parking spat

Feb 20, 2020

NEW YORK — Alec Baldwin didn't slander a man in interviews about a parking dispute that turned physical, a judge has ruled as dueling lawsuits between the actor and the other driver continue. Baldwin's remarks — including claims that Wojciech Cieszkowski's driving was “really fast,” “really aggressive” and made the actor think his wife and son were about to be run over — were "hyperbole" and "rhetorical illustrations," Manhattan judge David B. Cohen wrote Thursday. “They are words of frustration with someone's driving,” not accusations that amount to slander, Cohen wrote. He tossed out Cieszkowski's slander claim, but his assault...

Innovative fashion designers lead the way on sustainability

Feb 20, 2020

LONDON — Innovative fashion designers are turning to such things as horseradish and nettles to make sustainable clothing and accessories to the delight of a growing number of buyers. While more consumers are paying closer attention to how the production of goods impacts the environment, old habits die hard. A buy-and-toss mentality persists despite a boost from celebrities helping to drive the upcycle and vintage movements. Actress Maggie Q, who created an activewear line from recycled fabrics, is among activists who see plenty of room for improvement. She says she feels "sick about fast fashion.'' "You hear people say, 'Well,...

Streep, Miranda and Stone are named as Met Gala co-0chairs

Feb 20, 2020

NEW YORK — Next year's Met Gala may be the closest we'll ever come to getting a Miranda Priestly moment at the starry event. Meryl Streep has been named as a co-chair of the Metropolitan Museum of Art's Costume Institute. The Oscar-winner played Priestly, a thinly veiled fictional version of Vogue editor Anna Wintour, in the movie "The Devil Wears Prada." Wintour clearly has no hard feelings because she selected Streep as a co-chair along with Lin-Manuel Miranda and fellow Oscar-winner Emma Stone. Designer Nicolas Ghesquiere rounds out the group. The gala's theme is "About Time: Fashion and Duration," which...

Feb 20, 2020

NEW YORK — ABC News faced questions Tuesday about its reluctance to air a sensitive story of alleged sexual misconduct after a leaked video emerged of reporter Amy Robach complaining about how her bosses handled an interview with a Jeffrey Epstein accuser. The conservative web site Project Veritas released video of Robach venting that "every day I get more and more pissed" that her 2015 interview with Virginia Giuffre never made the air. Robach made her remarks late in August while sitting in a Times Square studio with a microphone but not on the air. ABC said Tuesday that the...
