When people are feeling tired at high intensity, or sometimes even moderate intensity, usually there is some underlying lung problem to blame. Typical symptoms include shortness of breath, chest tightness or cough during or after exercise, especially in the cold. However, performance issues frequently underly breathing problems.
At the Performance Lab, we believe that chronic, repetitive overuse injuries are due to exercise that exceeds the body's endurance capacity or the body's core strength. Quite often we find underlying asthma that limits an athlete's ability to perform at his/her best.
Once the asthma is corrected with appropriate medication and a medically sound exercise prescription, injuries can be overcome and the athlete can continue towards maximum performance. Because we are not only the only facility doing breathing evaluations for athletes, but also one of the few on the east coast, come by and unlock your potential.
