This one’s for my fellow humans who are living with Cystic Fibrosis.
Those who live with CF know that airway clearance is a big deal. It’s something that’s talked about from the moment of we are diagnosed and is an important part of keeping things moving in our lungs.
One of my approaches to airway clearance is through Continuum. It gets deeper movement for me than any vest session ever has to be honest and it’s one of my main ways I take care of myself (and the world, but that’s for another video). Continuum sounding has also really helped me improve my FEV1 and with that dreaded air trapping that can be such a part of life with lungs with CF.
I’ve also found that I can move and breathe in ways that I had no idea were possible. It’s pretty awesome. I mention in the video that I think it’s better to learn in person, but as we all know, that is not a good option in terms of me sharing with others with CF, but I have taught a few series virtually now and it really is a good and doable option.
Plus, you don’t have to leave your own home so that’s a perk.
If you’d like to find a Continuum teacher where you can check it out live, I would highly recommend it.
Please leave a note in the comments below if you’re interested in exploring more. Because I think it’s so darn important I’d be happy to offer an intro Continuum course designed especially for those living with CF if you guys have interest.
It’s been an absolute game changer for me and I feel like there is just so much possibility for so many.
For that matter, I’d also be very interested in teaching RT’s so that they can teach patients in all the CF clinics across the globe. Yes! Let’s do it!!!!
