Breathing is something we all take for granted until it becomes a struggle. For people living with lung disease, every breath can be a challenge. Difficulty breathing is a common symptom of many lung diseases, including chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), asthma, and interstitial lung disease. These conditions can lead to shortness of breath, wheezing, and coughing, which can impact a person’s quality of life.
Fortunately, there are ways to improve lung function and manage these symptoms. One effective method is breathing retraining. Breathing retraining is a technique that teaches individuals how to use their lungs more efficiently, allowing them to breathe easier and reduce shortness of breath. In this blog, we’ll explore what breathing retraining is and how it can benefit people with lung disease.
