Chiropractic for Ear Infections

Did you know that chiropractic treatments aren’t just for patients who suffer from back pain and immobility. Chiropractic adjustments have also been shown to treat things like headaches, insomnia, stress, and even ear infections.

Ear Aches Are Common in Children

Some children experience chronic ear problems, many times from infection. Bacterial or viral infections can come about after a cold, for instance. When a child experiences repeated infection, hearing damage can certainly occur, not to mention problems with speech and their development.

What’s Going on During an Ear Infection?

An ear infection is the result of the lymph system in the neck experiencing drainage problems. Infection can also occur lack of muscle functionality when it comes to the muscles that deter bacteria and viruses from entering the back of the throat tubes.

A big reason why children experience ear infections more often is because adults have larger tubes which allow for improved drainage.

Chiropractic: A Drug-Free Solution to Ear Infections

Antibiotics are generally prescribed to help kill infections, which haven’t exactly been proven to be more effective than your body’s own nervous system. Neither drainage or antibiotics treat the underlying condition.

Doctors of chiropractic are able to effectively diagnose ear infection problems, not to mention provide treatment that can restore tissue function in the neck. As a result, chiropractic treatment can significantly reduce, of not altogether eliminate, ear infections without medicinal or surgical intervention.
