Jo Mar has pretty much nailed the abdominal (Diaphragmatic) breathing with the link posted,
I learnt mine from Peter Edgelow but unfortunately he does not practice anymore due to health reasons, but he has trained a Steve at Physiotherapy Associates, Hayward CA, but I don't know what part of the country you live in?
In my journey I have realized
1. I need to do a 30 to 40 min cardio everyday
2. I need to do the diaphragmatic breathing exercises,
3. Soft tissue massage and myofascial release along with exercises taught by my local therapist to bring function back. She also uses a infra red laser light on the more painful areas, which I just love. ( I see her once or twice a week)
4. Currently I am seeing Arthur Ando (CFMT) in southern Ca for more structural issues and he is quite the expert on the body's stucture and posture and does manipulation to prepare the body for exercise as well has prescribed specific exercises,
But doing them all has really helped me and I am beginning to improve.
Earlier I could only do a limited range of Edgelow's breathing exercises, but now I am finally progressing because of the latter two.
Hope that helps!
