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.
