What is Asthma?
Asthma is a long-term lung condition that can be controlled but cannot be cured. Children with asthma have sensitive airways in their lungs which react to triggers causing a flare up, also known as an asthma attack. Symptoms vary from child to child but typically include breathlessness, tight feeling in chest, wheezing or coughing. These symptoms usually occur at night, early in the morning or during/just after physical exertion.
If you have any concerns about your child and exercise please get in touch with an Accredited Exercise Physiologist who can develop a suitable exercise program.
