When your breathing muscles are weakened from disease or surgery, it can have a devastating impact on daily life. Impaired breathing may hamper your ability to be physically active and may make walking, climbing stairs, and even sleeping difficult. Speech and swallowing can also be affected. Respiratory muscle training (RMT) strengthens your respiratory muscles and improves your ability to perform these activities.
