Hi!
In one side diaphragmatic paralysis, placation of the diaphragm helps. In mild bilateral diaphragmatic paralysis or weakness/paresis, inspiratory muscle strength and endurance training helps. In other cases nerve reconstruction, tracheostomy, assisted ventilation, and phrenic pacing with electrodes helps either singly or in combination.
Hope this helps. Take care!

The medical advice given should not be considered a substitute for medical care provided by a doctor who can examine you. The advice may not be completely correct for you as the doctor cannot examine you and does not know your complete medical history. Hence this reply to your post should only be considered as a guiding line and you must consult your doctor at the earliest for your medical problem.
