Medical providers, including pulmonary specialists, can sometimes have difficulty diagnosing the exact cause of a chronic cough. Common causes of cough include allergies, asthma (cough variant type), occupational exposure to air particulates or dust, bacterial or fungal infections, acid-reflux, and post-nasal drip.

A thorough examination for chronic cough should consider all of these conditions. Typically this examination is performed by a pulmonologist. In some cases, the cause remains unknown. This is referred to as idiopathic chronic cough.

How We Can Help

A recent patient visited us for chronic cough which had been present for over 40 years. The cough was severe and frequent enough that it would interfere with activities that most people take for granted, like being able to laugh at a good joke (without coughing).

During these 40 years, the cause remained unknown and although she had seen many medical providers over these years, she was not able to find any treatment that worked. Within 2 or 3 sessions at our clinic, the cough had disappeared. As the weather turned colder in winter, the cough returned in a milder form. We were able to continue treatment at a reduced frequency in order to provide relief.

The majority of our patients choose to receive acupuncture treatment when visiting our clinic because we offer a high level of care and skill within this practice specialty. A talented acupuncturist can effectively treat many health concerns from a holistic perspective of body, mind, and spirit.
