Asthma is an inflammatory disease of the airways to the lungs which makes breathing difficult and some physical activities difficult or even impossible. Asthma symptoms occur when the lining of your airways swell and the muscles around them tighten. Mucus then fills the airways, further reducing the amount of air that can pass through. These conditions together can bring on asthma “attack,” and the typical coughing and tightness in your chest. For asthma treatment, schedule a visit with us.
