Asthma Treatment

Overview

Asthma is a chronic respiratory condition that causes inflammation and narrowing of the airways, leading to difficulty in breathing. It is a prevalent condition worldwide, affecting people of all ages, although it often starts in childhood.

Symtoms

Common symptoms of asthma include recurring episodes of shortness of breath, wheezing, chest tightness, and coughing, particularly at night or early in the morning. The symptoms of asthma can vary in severity and frequency from person to person.

Causes

Asthma is primarily caused by a combination of genetic and environmental factors. Exposure to allergens such as dust mites, pollen, pet dander, and air pollution can trigger inflammation in the airways, leading to asthma symptoms.

Risk Factors

  • Family history of asthma or allergies
  • Being overweight or obese
  • Exposure to tobacco smoke, either during pregnancy or in the environment
  • Occupational exposure to irritants or allergens, such as chemicals or fumes

Prevention

  • Avoid exposure to known allergens or triggers
  • Quit smoking and avoiding exposure to secondhand smoke
  • Maintain a healthy weight
  • Take prescribed medications as directed by a healthcare professional

Treatment

Prompt diagnosis and treatment are important for asthma. If you suspect you have asthma, consult with a healthcare provider right away. Early detection of asthma is key to effective treatment and management.

Individuals with asthma may turn to physiotherapy to manage symptoms like shortness of breath (dyspnoea) or heavy breathing (hyperventilation). Physiotherapists can employ multiple methods to enhance breathing patterns in patients with asthma. While these physiotherapy strategies complement medication, they should not replace prescribed treatments.
