      Sandnes, Astrid; Andersen, Tiina Maarit; Clemm, Hege Synnøve Havstad; Hilland, Magnus; Heimdal, John-Helge; Halvorsen, Thomas; Røksund, Ola Drange; Vollsæter, Maria (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2021)
      Purpose: Exercise-induced laryngeal obstruction (EILO) is relatively common in young people. Treatment rests on poor evidence; however, inspiratory muscle training (IMT) has been proposed a promising strategy. We aimed to ...
    • Physiotherapy improves symptoms of exercise-induced laryngeal obstruction in young elite athletes: A case series 

      Kolnes, Liv-Jorunn; Vollsæter, Maria; Røksund, Ola Drange; Stensrud, Trine (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2019)
      Objective: A constricted, upper chest breathing pattern and postural dealignments habitually accompany exercise-induced laryngeal obstruction (EILO), but there are few effective treatments for athletes presenting with EILO. ...
