What is Asthma?
Asthma is an allergic condition that causes inflammation and affects a person’s ability to breathe. It causes the airways in the lungs to experience chronic inflammation that may worsen if exposed to certain triggers. Inflammation makes it difficult for air to move in and out of the lungs properly, which causes wheezing, coughing, shortness of breath, and a tight feeling in the chest. The problem might be exacerbated by physical activity or stress, or may be induced by exercise or allergies. Asthma may also give rise to fatigue, sleep disturbance, and/or insomnia.
How Can Atlantic Medicine and Wellness Assist in Asthma Relief?
When you visit our wellness center in NJ, diagnosis begins with a thorough medical history and review of symptom triggers. We then perform breathing tests to measure lung performance. The tests not only help your us to determine if asthma is the cause of breathing problems, but they also allow us to determine the severity of the disease. Other methods, including allergy tests, food diaries, and medication trials might be used to determine the underlying cause.
Our NJ Wellness Center’s Approach to Treatment
Asthma is a chronic condition that may be managed and controlled. Our multi-disciplinary approach to Asthma treatment includes medicine and chiropractic care, physical therapy, acupuncture, and nutritional guidance and education. Identifying the underlying triggers for each patient’s condition and then avoiding those triggers makes it easier to control symptoms. We also understand that managing symptoms reduce a patient’s risk for secondary conditions, such as pneumonia and flu, and we work with patients to create a complete approach to avoiding and treating symptoms.
