This hour will offer a detailed description of the affects of hyperventilation, shallow upper chest breathing on the body's physiology and biomechanics. In this hour the anatomy and effects of the sympathetic nervous system is introduced as well as a discussion on respiratory alkalosis and the effects on our physiology. Discussion of sub-optimal breathing patterns and the multitude of dysfunctions that can be related to it will be presented such as chronic pain, fibromyalgia, chronic pelvic and non cardiac chest.
Identify how altered breathing patterns can alter pH and how this can affect the body.
Review the autonomic nervous system and function.
Determine three physiological consequences of respiratory alkalosis.
Review suboptimal breathing patterns and their effect on the cervical spine and chronic pain.
Autonomic nervous system anatomy and effects

Over-inflation and upper chest breathing
Respiratory alkalosis/hyperventilation and the consequences
Somatic Dysfunctions, Chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia, chronic pain
