The diaphragm is one of the most important muscles in the body. It has primary functions in respiration, stabilization, and mobilization. It facilitates circulation, relaxation, and excitation. Like any skeletal muscle, it atrophies and weakens when not used appropriately.
Daily breathing obviously keeps one alive however it is not enough to optimize function.
Chronic postural control issues, stability, and the loss of balance are 3 common signs one is not breathing appropriately.
