About Asthma

Coughing, wheezing, shortness of breath, noisy breathing, or chest tightness are all common symptoms of asthma. Asthma is a chronic, reversible condition causing inflammation and narrowing of the bronchial tubes. Asthma affects 26 million Americans and while there is no cure for asthma, there are effective treatments available.
There are 2 types of asthma:

  • Allergic: This type is triggered by exposure to allergens, such as pollens, mold or pet dander.
  • Non-Allergic: Brought on by factors such as stress, exercise, illness, extreme weather, irritants in the air and certain medication.

Our team can help you manage and treat your asthma so you can live a life unhindered. For asthma sufferers, prevention of symptoms is the best course of treatment. The best way to prevent an asthma flare is by identifying specific triggers for asthma and avoiding those whenever possible. Additionally, there are many effective asthma medications that provide quick relief as well as long term control.
