About

The aim of this study is to investigate the effect of instrument-assisted soft tissue mobilization applied to the hamstring muscle on respiratory function in patients with COPDThe patients to be included in the study will be divided into two groups by simple randomization. A group will be given breathing exercises (pursed lip breathing, diaphragmatic breathing and thoracic expansion exercises) as a home program. The other group will be given breathing exercises in the form of a home program in addition to 1 session of EDYM per week. Both groups will be evaluated before and 4 weeks after treatment.
