Asthma

Asthma

Asthma is a chronic disease that involves the airways in the lungs and causes inflammation.  The airways can become even more swollen when something triggers your symptoms.

Symptoms of asthma include:

  • Shortness of breath
  • Chest tightness or pain
  • chronic coughing. 

Asthma flare-ups are most commonly caused by allergies, but can also be caused by smoke, cold air, exercise or sickness. We can diagnose and treatment asthma in our office. It is done so using a spirometer, which can test your breathing capacity.  Dr. Mathuria can interpret the results, and also narrow down the triggers of your asthma and create a treatment plan.
