Cough is one of the most common symptoms of the respiratory diseases caused by many diseases. It may occur in any season, but mostly in winter and spring. Modern medicine holds that the infantile respiratory tracts are distributed with profuse blood vessels and the mucous membranes of the trachea and bronchi are delicate, so they are liable to be infected and develop inflammation.
TCM believes that the lung qi in infants is insufficient, so their lung is susceptible to being attacked by exogenous pathogenic factors, leading to disturbances in its dispersing and descending functions and eventually resulting in cough. Clinically, cough is divided into two types: exogenous cough and endogenous cough. And infantile cough mostly belongs to the former.
    
   
BASIC MANIPULATIONS
    
The principle of tuina therapy is mainly dispersing pulmonary qi to stop cough.

The manipulations are performed once a day, but twice for severe cases, and three days form one treatment course. In the course of treating cough with Tuina, the cause of cough should also be looked for so as to conduct a comprehensive treatment.  Meanwhile proper rest and light food should also be given to infantile patients in the presence of cough. In seasons with changeable weather, infantile thoracoabdominal areas should be kept warm in case of catching cold
