In general, people with asthma tend to avoid exercise and other strenuous activities for fear of an asthma attack or worsening of their symptoms.
However, physical training was well tolerated among people with asthma, and improves heart and lung function, according to a systematic review of the research literature published at the Cochrane Database. In fact, as a result of the research, the authors of the review recommended that people with asthma should perform regular exercise training.
When exercise is performed in moderation and within your personal abilities, it can have many positive benefits. The research indicates that fear of asthmatic attacks should not prevent you from creating a personal exercise habit.

With my son so active in sports I see a lot of parents bringing inhalers to practices and games. While I occasionally question the necessity, many of these kids have other factors working against them that could mimic a need for an inhaler.

Asthma can be triggered by stress and too much physical exertion. Exercise could possibly help minimize asthma attack but it would be a lot better if it's done with a chiropractor whose expertise is already tested when it comes to this.
