Laryngomalacia (literally, “soft larynx“) is the most common cause of stridor in infancy, in which the soft, immature cartilage of the upper larynx collapses inward during inhalation, causing airway obstruction. It can also be seen in older patients, especially those with neuromuscular conditions resulting in weakness of the muscles of the throat. However, the infantile form is much more common. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Laryngomalacia)

In recent years, we have treated three cases of this condition.

One A Z. female, 8 weeks old.Mom found her has difficult respiration since born, when inhaling the air, the baby has “ca”, “”ca” sound. The flexible laryngoscopy found she has laryngomalacia. Physician suggested baby to use Zantac, Omeprozole, and mylanta (block the acid reflux). We used acupuncture to adjust the lung and stomach meridian function. After three sessions, the respiration difficulty stopped. Then the baby had 30 additional acupuncture, everything became normal.

Another O V. male, 5 weeks old. same condition as above, after 2 sessions acupuncture, the respiration difficulty disappeared. Total had 14 treatments.

Here I post a doctor’s suggestion to his patient. I feel he is correct.
“I was just thinking why you may not have
taken advantage of your consultation.

You’re probably like many others who
suffer from back pain, headache, neck pain,
soreness, or any type of physical ache or pain…
the pain comes and goes and now you’re feeling
pretty good…am I right?

Sometimes even our patients often feel
better after the first few treatments,
and although this may seem good, the opposite
can sometimes be true as well.

Patients often mistake this feeling for a total
cure of their condition. They simply do not
realize that a relief of the symptoms DOES
NOT indicate a correction of the condition.

The smart patients never discontinue treatment
before their actual complaint has been corrected,
and if they do so, further complications are
bound to develop.

Even if you feel better, get checked out.

Prevent future problems.

We’ll extend our offer for a consultation,
but you have to call our office .
We’re standing by to hear from you and hopefully
help you prevent future problems.”

Infant, baby, ChildI often got call and asked me–

 “Do you treat Children’s condition?”, or

 “How old the child could be got acupuncture?” or

 “Do you think it is safe doing acupuncture in baby?”

I always reply–children at any age could be got acupuncture, acupuncture is very safe in children, and most important–acupuncture is more effective in children than adults due to children’s physiological characteristics.

For acupuncture in children, we have more confidence because:

(1) Dr.Fan had special apprenticeship with Dr.Su, Shang-yi,when he was a TCM student during 1981-1986 in Nanjing University of Chinese Medicine. Dr.Su was very famous in pediatric acupuncture, and saved many children’s life, esp. for those in danger condition stayed ICU of Nanjing Municiple Hospital at that time, such as Respiratory failure or Circulation failure.

(2) Dr.Fan has young patients almost everyday, he has accumulated much experience.

Recently, Dr.Fan treated a 8 weeks old baby, Alexandria.Z. with Accide Reflux and Laryngomalacia. Before the treatment, baby had milk spill out of mouth, acide reflux, which caused hard of breath, sometime, breath stopping with face pulple, baby bowle movement also had difficulty, she push stool or gas a lot, which also cause milk spill out of mouth. Only after 2 times’ acupuncture, the baby has improved significantly. No longer milk spill out of mouth, no longer strugle with the breath, and very calm and no more strugle with pushing the gas or stool.

Here, we show a picture of the baby A.Z.with Dr.Fan.She is very calm.

Baby A.Z. eight weeks old is my youngest patient, our oldest patient is 92 years old, with lower back pain.
