RELIEF

Asthma is a chronic disease that causes inflammation and narrowing of the airways. This inflammation causes recurrent attacks characterized by classic signs and symptoms such as, wheezing, shortness of breath, chest tightness, and coughing. Your airways are sensitive to different particles in the air we breathe, called triggers. Triggers vary from person to person and include various allergens (dust mites, pollen, pet dander, etc) and irritants in the air (smoke from cigarettes, wood fires, etc). The best way to manage and treat Asthma is to prevent symptoms by knowing personal triggers. Asthma affects people of all ages including children and elderly. There are many medications available to relieve your Asthma symptoms.
