Some very important facts which may be reducing your sporting performance.
- As many as 1 in 2 people only use chest breathing.
- These people only use their upper one-third of the lungs.
- Your lower 10% of your lungs transports between 6-7 times the amount of oxygen than the upper 10% of your lungs (the portion you may not be using).
Diaphragmatic breathing increases the rate of elimination of toxins by about 15 times.
Conditions like Asthma, COPD, Cystic Fibrosis and Bronchiectasis cause obstructions in your lungs from mucus creation and inflammation, causing more issues with breathing.
How does this affect your sporting performance?
Because the lungs are like a balloon, if you don’t use a portion of your lungs for a certain period of time and you have mucus creation conditions like Asthma, COPD, Cystic Fibrosis, Bronchiectasis, etc… then those portions of your lungs can become blocked and stick together with mucus.
This further reduces your available airway and lung function, potentially reducing your ability to breathe.
If you also have a respiratory condition like asthma or the cold and flu, like many athletes, this can cause a worsening of your performance when you need it the most like in the middle of a game or during a workout and potentially, increasing your the time needed to recover.
How Does AirPhysio Improve Your Lung Function?
This version is also suitable for individuals who have taken up sport to help them manage their asthma or COPD and who have a good lung function due to consistent exercise but require management before their condition worsens. The device assists in lung expansion and mucus clearance, helping to maintain maximum airway clearance and lung lung function before, during and after a work out.
