Behaviour modification as an emerging outlook of Physical therapy helps to exhibit positive changes in this broad spectrum of asthma. This study aimed to identify the possible potential factors to improve chest expansion by analysing the effect of buteyko breathing and relaxed postures.

Methods: Experimental study design; 20 patients of the age group 17-19 years were selected using simple random sampling method.

Stop watch, nose clip, inch tape, pediatric asthma quality of life questionnaire [PAQLQ] were used as the operational tools. Paired and Unpaired “t” testing was used to analyze the pre- test and the post- test values after a period of 6 months.

Results: Analysis of the peak expiratory flow rate and the quality of life over Group “A” and Group “B” at 0.05% level of significance showed positive results for Group “A” when compared with the ‘t’ value.
