An asthma attack is commonly characterized by coughing, shortness of breath, and tightness or pain in the chest. These symptoms are the result of the inflammation of the bronchial tubes, affecting the air passages in the lungs when a person with asthma has been exposed to irritants. There is no end-all be-all cause of asthma, but individuals with family histories of allergies are more likely to acquire the disorder. Ealing physiotherapy treatment methods include giving out rightful information for proper prevention and providing specialist skills to manage attacks.
Manifestations of asthma vary from person to person. The symptoms and severity may differ from each occurrence. Some people may experience asthma every day, while others can go for extended periods of time without suffering from the condition.
To better control asthma attacks, Ealing physio specialists will teach you breathing techniques to control and rehabilitate your breathing. Treatments for asthma are painless, non-invasive, and do not usually require additional medicine. Aside from managing the symptoms, physiotherapists will also give advice on how you can still be active and participate in physical activities.
When visiting a practice, make sure to see a specialist in respiratory physiotherapy like a professional working with CK Physiotherapy, as they are the ones who are trained to treat breathing conditions. The specialist will thoroughly assess your condition to give you effective advice and treatment.
You can also take a number of measures to keep your asthma attacks in control. First, always take your medication wherever you go. Make sure that these medicines are prescribed for you and that you take the right doses whenever you need it. Second, be familiar with your asthma triggers so you will be able to take the necessary steps to avoid these. Lastly, keep your body fit and healthy by staying active with proper guidance from your physiotherapist.
Keeping your asthma under control will enable you to participate in any sport or physical activity you enjoy. Athletes who have this condition have found techniques to effectively control their asthma and perform well in their respective disciplines. Therefore, it is also possible to find methods that will work for you to improve your quality of life.
