Asthma is a lung condition that causes irritation and swelling (inflammation) of the lining of the airways in your lungs. The inflammation causes wheezing, coughing, and shortness of breath. Asthma can be a chronic problem, which means you may have it the rest of your life.
ARC physicians will create an asthma management plan customized for your level of severity. We encourage you to learn as much as you can about the treatment and prevention of asthma and its symptoms so you can partner with your doctor in managing your health. See the resources below for more information.
