Pulmonologist Questions Asthma

Are there any exercises to strengthen the lungs in case of an asthma patient?

My daughter is 8 years old and is an asthmatic. Are there any lung exercises that I can induce in her everyday lifestyle which will help in strengthening her lungs?

No. She is exercising her lungs all the time, anyway. She really cannot make them stronger. Be sure the rest of her body is strong, and that she is getting adequate asthma care from her doctor.
