According to our Stoke on Trent chiropractor, controlled breathing can be as effective as some medicines for managing pain.
If you suffer with chronic pain, try the following breathing exercise.
Relax your body and mind and get into a comfortable position. Breathe deeply, so that your tummy expands and contracts like a balloon with each breath. Breathe in for a count of four and then hold your breath for a count of four. Next, exhale to a count of four, and then hold your breath to a count of four. Repeat this exercise for ten cycles.
Remember to do the exercise only for as long as you’re comfortable. If you begin to feel light headed, return your breathing to normal and shorten the number of deep breaths you take the next time you do the exercise.
