Functional breathing disorders are about breathing behaviours and functions rather than actual diseases of the lungs.

I treat adults and children with a broad range of functional breathing problems:

Functional breathing disorders can exist in people who suffer from conditions such as:

  • asthma
  • COPD
  • sleep apnea and sleep disordered breathing
  • pelvic floor pain and dysfunction
  • chronic back and neck pain
  • postural issues
  • cranio-facial pain
  • anxiety and panic disorder
  • insufficient airways due to structural causes
  • muscular-skeletal dysfunction
  • overtraining syndrome, burnout and exhaustion.

Functional breathing disorders take different forms, such as:

  • dysfunctional breathing
  • hyperventilation
  • mouth breathing
  • paradoxical vocal fold dysfunction
  • breathing pattern disorders.

Treatment is individualised for each person and includes:
