Breathing Exercises For Asthma Or Exercise Induced Asthma And Chronic Injuries
It is a medical condition is characterize by shortness of breath induce by sustained aerobic exercise. It shares many features with other types of asthma and responds to some typical asthma medications.
But does not appear to be cause by the same inflammatory reaction as the other types.
Causes of Exercise-Induced Asthma:-
While the potential triggering events for exercise induced asthma (EIA) are well delineate (portray by drawing or in words) the underlying parthenogenesis (study of disease) is properly understood. It usually occurs after at least several minutes of vigorous, aerobic activity, which demands that normal nasal breathing be supplements by mouth breathing.
The resultant inhalation of air that has not been warm and humidify by the nasal passages seems to generate increase blood flow to the linings of the bronchial tree, resulting in edema. Constriction of these vessels then follows, worsening the degree of obstruction to air flow. The sequence generate symptoms similar to those seen in other forms of asthma, but occurs without the inflammatory changes the underline them.
Symptoms of Exercise-Induced Asthma:-
During an attack, the exercise induced asthma (EIA) victim will likely be short of breath and or coughing. An elevated respiratory rate and wheezing, which may be audible even without a stethoscope. Examination will usually reveal the wheezing and a prolonged expiatory phase. In the occasional severe attack, altered level of consciousness and cyanosis due to depressed oxygenation of the blood may occur. Severe attacks are often the result of someone with both allergic and exercise induced asthma exercising in a high allergen environment. For example walking uphill alongside slowly moving traffic at dust and can be fatal.
In most cases, a relative refractory period follows resolution of an attack. During this approximately one hour period, resumption of exercise will likely produce either none or mild symptoms. Curiously as well some 6-10 hours after the initial attack, a rebound attack with milder. It symptoms often develops without precipitating excretion.
As with any asthma, the best treatment is avoidance, when possible of conditions predisposing to attacks. In athletes who wish to continue their sport and or do so at times in adverse conditions, prevention measures include altered training techniques and medication can taken.
Some athletes take advantages of the refractory period by precipitating an attack by warming up and then timing their competition. It occurs during the refractory period. Step wise training works in a similar fashion. An athlete warms up in stages of increasing intensity, using the refractory period generated by each stage to get up to a full work load.
The most common medication approach is to use a beta agonist about twenty minutes before exercise. Some physicians prescribe inhaled anti-inflammatory mist such as contortionists or leukotrience antagonists and mast cell stabilizers have also proven effective. A randomized crossover study compared oral moutelukast with inhaled salmeterol both given two hours before exercise. Both drugs had similar benefit but montelukast lasted 24 hours.
As evidence by the many professional athletes who have overcome exercise induced asthma (EIA) using some combination of the above treatments, the prognosis is usually very good. Olympic swimmers Tom Dolan, Amy Van Dyken and Nancy Hogshead, Olympic track star Jakie Joyner Kersee, baseball Hall of Farmer Catfish Hunter and American football player Jerome Bettis are among the many who have done so.
At the same time, it should be noted that according to International Olympic committee statistics during most of Olympic Games in last 20 years from 1/3 to 2/3 of athletes claimed to have asthma. Some medical experts tie such inordinate rates of reported asthma with athletes desire to use complex medications to help achieve better results.
Chronic injuries:- Such as aches and pain of unknown origin, tendinitis (swelling in Tendons) and stress fracture (hairline fracture of the bone due to over use).
These are those injuries that develops slowly and is persistent and long lasting. These are also known as cumulative trauma or over use or repetitive stress injuries. Many chronic injuries have mild symptoms and are often ignore or over looked for months and years.
The symptoms of chronic injuries develops slowly. The begin as a small, nagging ache or pain and can grow into a debilitating injury if they are not treated early. Chronic injuries are the result of repetitive use, stress to the soft tissues of the body i. e. muscles, tendons, bones, and joints without proper time foe healing.
Continuous pain, as opposed to sharp pangs/ sudden sharp pain or twinges/ sharp momentary local pain. An ache can be either dull and constant, as in some types of backache or throbbing violent beat or pulsation and its occurrence in animals is only assume.
According to Kartikey Seghal, ”Happiness will not come from happiness; but only from pain. We know the value of standing in shade only roaming in the hot day sun”.
According to Atharva Veda: ”Pain is fun. Pain is natural. Pain is the word given to describe a feeling that is not like happiness. Humans crave pain. Often they are not able to understand the true nature of pain and hence they give into drugs and sadism. To know pain is to understand a simple duality”.
Tendonitis is inflammation or irritation of tendon- any one of the thick fibrous cord that attach muscles to bones. The condition causes pain and tenderness just outside o joint. While tendonitis can occurs in any body’s tendons, it is most common around your shoulders, elbows, wrist and heels.
Some common names for various tendonitis problem are:
