The relaxation techniques used by your physiotherapist at Manchester may involve:
  • Breathingthis may include breathing control which focusing on relaxing your upper body and breathing from your tummy. This can be used in conjunction with deep breathing which helps the muscles relax when pain is restricting breathing. Deep breathing also helps to lower blood pressure, decrease heart rate and bring oxygen into the body, to reduce pain and anxiety.
  • Progressive muscle relaxation – which involves slowly tensing and then releasing each muscle group individually, starting with the muscles in the toes and finishing with those in the head.
  • Advice on maintaining a good posture to increase comfort and reduce stiffness or tension in sitting, standing, lying down or moving around. It is important to become more aware of posture and find ways to remember to regularly check and improve one's position.
Your physiotherapist will also advise you on how to remain as active as possible and manage your pain more effectively so you can carry on with your daily activities.
