Exercise Induced Asthma

What is it?

Asthma is a medical condition that causes coughing and shortness of breath. For many who suffer from asthma, exercise only exacerbates these problems. Asthmatic symptoms that are brought about by the shortness of breath that occurs during exercise is referred to as exercise induced asthma. This problem arises because exercise narrows the air passageways. When this occurs, labored breathing, coughing, or wheezing soon follow. As a result, many sufferers of exercise induced asthma skip exercise and eliminate cardiovascular activity from their lives. This doesn’t have to be you!
