Asthma Treatment in Mount Pleasant
It can be a stressful or worrisome time, if you or a loved one may be suffering from asthma. Asthma is a lung disease that causes episodes of wheezing, coughing, shortness of breath, and chest tightness, most often starting in young children.
Our on-staff asthma specialist, Dr. Frederick Shaffer, will help diagnose and treat your or your child’s asthma, as well as answer any other questions you may have.
Diagnosing Your Asthma
The Alpha Care doctors will use physical tests, such as breathing or lung function tests, to diagnose the extent of your asthma.
While diagnosing asthma in young children can be a challenge, our asthma and allergy experts can figure out whether a child’s wheezing is a respiratory infection, allergies, or full-blown asthma.
Asthma is a chronic condition with no cure but with proper treatment. Sufferers can have little to no symptoms over time and enjoy normal activities. Treatment includes prescribing short-term and long-term medicines and avoiding asthma triggers.
