With our night and weekend availability, board-certified providers, and individualized care, you will never feel like just another number rushed through the process when you come to us for bronchitis treatment.
Bronchitis occurs when the bronchial tubes become infected and swollen. The bronchial tubes carry air to the lungs, so when they are inflamed, they produce more mucus and a nagging cough. Typically, bronchitis develops after a cold or the flu because your body has been working overtime to fight off the germs, which causes the bronchial tubes to swell. The symptoms of bronchitis include chest congestion, coughing, shortness of breath, lethargy, and sore throat.
In most cases, bronchitis can be treated at home with over-the-counter medication and rest. However, come straight to AtlantiCare in Egg Harbor Township, NJ, for bronchitis treatment if you experience the following symptoms:
