A Look at Exercise-Induced Asthma

Exercise-induced asthma is one of the conditions that an allergy specialist can treat. Also known as exercise-induced bronchoconstriction, this is a condition characterized by symptoms such as shortness of breath and wheezing that occur during exercise. However, individuals with this condition shouldn’t try to avoid cardiovascular exercise. Instead, they can work with an asthma specialist to learn how to exercise safely.

When you watch this news clip, you’ll hear from a college student who has exercise-induced bronchoconstriction. He uses an inhaler while he runs around campus. You’ll also hear an allergist explain why exercise can trigger asthma symptoms in some people.

Fellowship-trained, board-certified allergists and immunologists comprise the entire physician staff of Allergy & Asthma Specialists.
