Exercise and Asthma

  • Asthma and Exercise

    Exercise-induced asthma is different from the typical asthma that is triggered by allergens and/or irritants.

  • Asthma and Physical Activity

    When you have asthma, exercise can make you breathe faster. This may cause asthma symptoms or an asthma attack.

  • Exercise-Induced Bronchoconstriction

    Exercise-induced bronchoconstriction is a sudden narrowing of the airways when you exercise. Exercise can make symptoms worse in most people who have asthma.
