Many Ear Infections can be Resolved (or Avoided) with Specific Adjustments
The most common type of ear infection is called Acute Otitis Media. This condition occurs when parts of the middle ear become infected, leading to trapped fluid behind the eardrum. This can cause severe pain in the ear, commonly known as an earache. The infection is usually secondary to an upper respiratory infection from a virus or bacteria. Children who eat a diet high in DAIRY, WHEAT, and SUGAR are more prone to infections because these products overexert and drain the immune system.
Chronic ear infections can be devastating not only to the child, who is in excruciating pain, but also to the parents when seeing their child in such discomfort. Before turning to antibiotics (which can cause moderate to severe digestive distress) or surgery (which in over 30% of cases requires repeated surgical intervention), try the safe and effective route of chiropractic adjustments.
Allowing an adjustment to realign the upper cervical spine and occiput (back of the skull) can shift the mechanics of the Eustachian tubes and allow for better drainage. Proper drainage ultimately allows your child to fight off infection and build immunity for future health. Although some parents are initially hesitant to try this approach for their children, adjustment techniques are always adapted to the individual child and are safe for children of all ages.
“My five year old daughter Anna had trouble hearing and fluid in her ears for three years. Since starting care with Dr. Dan her ears are finally draining on their own. We used to wait weeks for her hearing to return to normal after a cold or allergies caused fluid in the ears. Now we either see no hearing loss at all or a quick turn-around of only a day before she hears well again. We were able to stop giving her antibiotics. Dr. Dan is good with children and makes them feel comfortable after they have been afraid with other doctors.” – Leanne C.
