What is asthma?
Asthma is a condition that causes the bronchial tubes to narrow and inflame. The bronchial tubes assist with airflow to and from the lungs. More often than not, asthma conditions run in families. If asthma runs in your family, you may be genetically predisposed to the condition. On the other hand, there are asthma conditions not caused genetically, but environmentally. Asthma is caused by an allergic reaction, or a non-allergic reaction, like stress, having a cold, extreme weather, or consumed medications.
How do we treat asthma at our allergy clinic?
By seeing an allergy doctor for your asthma condition, you'll reduce asthma symptoms, emergency room visits, missed days from work or school, and costs in healthcare. Don't delay treating your asthma condition and risking a serious reaction. Schedule an appointment at our allergy clinic to begin an asthma action plan.
An action plan will include long term and short term relief. Our allergy doctors will work with you to determine what triggers your asthma, and offer guidance on how to avoid those triggers as much as possible. In asthma flare cases, we will work with you to figure out the best "quick-relief" medication. For long-term prevention, we will prescribe common medication that reduces inflammation, so you can breathe and feel better on a daily basis.
If you're having asthma symptoms, consult our allergy doctor for an asthma treatment plan. We want you to breathe better today!
