Asthma

Asthma Clinic

Asthma is a long lasting disease involving the lungs. The tubes within the lungs, or bronchial tubes, allow air to come in and out of the lungs.

If you have asthma, your tubes are always swollen or inflammed. They become even more swollen and the muscles around the tube can tighten when something triggers your symptoms. This makes it hard for air to move in and out of the lungs, causing symptoms such as coughing, breathing loud, shortness of breath and/or chest tightness.

For many asthma sufferers, these symptoms worsen during physical activity. Some healthy people can develop asthma symptoms only when exercising. This is exercise-induced bronchoconstriction (EIB), or exercise-induced asthma (EIA). Staying active is an important way to stay healthy, so asthma shouldn’t keep you on the sidelines. Your doctor can develop a management plan to keep your symptoms under control before, during and after physical activity.

People with a family history of allergies or asthma are more prone to developing asthma. Many people with asthma also have allergies. This is allergic asthma.

Occupational asthma occurs by breathing in fumes, gases, dust or other harmful substances while on the job.

Childhood asthma effects millions of children and their families. In fact, most of children who develop asthma do so before the age of five.

There is no cure for asthma, but once it is diagnosed and a treatment plan is in place, you will be able to manage your condition, and your quality of life will improve. Summit Urgent Care can help manage this problem, making your life easier. Contact us or make a visit to the clinic.
