Regular physical activity is recommended for people with asthma, but it is also a common trigger for asthma symptoms.

Our third webinar in the series of three was held on Wednesday 5th October and was presented by Ms Janet Bondarenko, a senior respiratory physiotherapist at the Alfred hospital.

How to Breathe Better During Exercise

With Janet’s help, we have compiled some common questions you may have about breathing during exercise, along with Ms Bondarenko’s answers, below.

We’ve kept this Q&A to questions to do with breathing whilst exercising and breath retraining. If you had a question about asthma that wasn’t answered here, please call our Asthma Educators on 1800 ASTHMA (1800 278 462).  Please consult your doctor for information about your asthma and exercise. Consider asking your doctor for a referral to an exercise physiologist/physiotherapist or local pulmonary rehabilitation to help you.
