WHAT THE COMMUNITY HAS TO SAY ABOUT THIS INJURY

Khizar Gondal – In the Navy they teach a technique to switch your breathing, so if you land on your left foot and breathe in, then on your right foot you breathe out, just do the opposite which would be to breathe out on your left foot and breathe in on your right foot. You can also use this for any breathing technique, besides this taking a large amount of air in to have your diaphragm expand fully, most cramps or side stitches happen to me because I’m not breathing properly or I had too much food or liquids.
