What Is Asthma?
As one of the most common chronic conditions that impact children and adults alike, asthma is a disease that affects the lungs and causes the airways within them to become inflamed, making it difficult for air to pass through. Asthma can be accompanied by a cough, wheezing breath, and tightness felt in the chest, all of which can drastically get in the way of healthy physical activity, like playing sports or daily chores. Thankfully, Dr. Larry Sanchez is highly experienced at addressing asthma symptoms at Blue Elk Family Clinic, and we can offer patients a range of customized treatment plans in order to help patients breathe comfortably and without struggle.

Causes and Treatment For Asthma
Some of the most common signs of asthma include wheezing, tightness in the chest, persistent coughing, and shortness of breath. To find out if you or your child have asthma, we will perform a physical evaluation that includes listening to the lungs for overwork or activity. Although asthma is chronic, it can be controlled with proper care and medication. At our office, our highly trained physicians and providers have experience in handling children with asthma. If you feel as if your child is suffering from asthma, it's critical that they get a health checkup. An asthma screening is the first step. Once you have a diagnosis, our provider will make a recommendation about treatment.
