Breathing Assessment and Unilateral Rib Expansion Mobilization

This is a similar breathing assessment in my previous video. However, since this patient had decreased shoulder/trunk rotation unilaterally, and decreased rib expansion, I demonstrate near the end of the video (if you want to skip to 15:00) a technique to expand ribs unilaterally by holding one side down after an exhale, then continuing to stabilize that side during the next deep inhale.

Credit goes to PRI courses for teaching that technique.
