Osteopathy and Singing: Support and Sustainment


Osteopathy and Singing: Support and Sustainment


It happens that when I evaluate a patient's spine, palpating the dorsolumbar transition I ask, "Do you have problems with support?"

It is not magic, it is just knowledge of the anatomo physiological components of singing.

What, then, does this observation mean?


Support, more pertaining to the thoracic external intercostal component, the posterior superior dentate and the anterior diaphragmatic muscle-tendon part is that respiratory component that allows us to control the diaphragmatic ascent to act on the subglottic pressure of the first expiratory phase.


Sustainment, pertaining to the oblique abdominals and posterior part of the diaphragm (more muscular), is that respiratory component that allows us to increase intra-abdominal (core) pressures so that we can act, by controlling it, on the subglottic pressure in all expiratory phases, especially at the end, so very useful in the management of long phrases and in longs.
