Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Maximal inspiratory and expiratory pressure (IPmax and EPmax) were assessed by a manovacuometer and tidal volume (VT), vital capacity (VC) and minute ventilation (VE) were assessed by a ventilometer [ Time Frame: pre-intervention and post-intervention ]

Secondary Outcome Measures :
