Can Chiropractic help Ear Infections?

Ask any parent that has had to contend with a child with an ear infection.  Not fun. They can come on from nowhere and be fast and furious. Screaming sad child in a lot of pain.

Chiropractors for generations have known how well chiropractic can work for ear infections.  

In fact, it is one the fastest most immediate reliefs for otitis media.  I have adjusted hundreds of children with acute otitis media and have watched it dissipate with in seconds.  Many children regularly come for chiropractic simply to keep chronic ear infections at bay and have great results from regular adjustments.  I have worked with children that were on their tenth round of antibiotics for ear infections, three adjustments later the pain was gone and with regular adjustments, it has never come back..   Several patients were able to cancel scheduled surgery for ear tubes after discovering chiropractic.

Simply explained, when the middle ear fills with fluid- an infection can develop. A chiropractic adjustment can restore motion to the neck and structures that can contribute to fluid moving appropriately.  When the fluid can’t pool, you can reduce or eliminate the probability of an infection. 

In a study published by Journal of Manipulative and Physiological Therapies, in children 93% of all episodes improved, 75% in 10 days or fewer and 43% with only one or two chiropractic treatments(1) — You can view the link below to get some more information on our source for this information.

For parents looking for an alternative to conventional treatment of antibiotics, chiropractic is great choice, and a great way to help you children feel their best without drugs.

  1. I have been taking my three children to Dr Moe for regular adjustments, as well as every single time any of us gets an ear infection, or more than 11 years now. Of the more than 20 times I have taken a child with an ear infection to Dr. Moe for an adjustment, their pain had ended before we drove away from the clinic. Chiropractic for ear infections is like an absolute miracle. I’ve sent countless friends and family members to Dr. Moe and have gotten positive feedback from each and every one. Chiropractic seems especially effective on not on the problems with the spine and other bones and joints in the body, but especially with ear infections. As numerous studies have shown that many ear infections are caused by a fungal infection, it seems especially irresponsible for Western medicine to continue to prescribe antibiotics for this condition. This is a medical issue that Western medicine really does not have a cure for. Studies have shown that antibiotics do not usually work to resolve ear infections, and it is my believe that doctors prescribe them as more of a placebo against the intense pain of an ear infection rather than telling the patient or the parents that they have no solution. Chiropractic has literally been a lifesaver for me and my kids many times, especially by Dr Moe’s ability to immediately resolve the pain experienced by a child with an acute ear infection. Highly, highly recommended.
