Chiropractic for Ear Infections
A natural solution to relieve and manage pain caused by ear infections.
Understanding ear infections and how routine chiropractic care can help manage them.
The New Way Of Treating Ear Infections
Ear infections can come on occasionally or they can be chronic. Ear infections can be more common in children because children’s ears are less developed and their Eustachian tubes are much smaller and level to the ground. When that is the case, the fluid that is behind the ear does not drain properly and it can become infected. Ear infections can happen to adults, as well. They can be chronic when there is a deformity of the inner ear. Regardless of age, ear infections can be extremely painful and annoying if they become chronic. Ear infections can also cause you to lose your hearing if they are not treated properly. If it becomes severe enough, you may choose to get surgery of the inner ear, or you may receive repeated rounds of antibiotics. While antibiotics may work, when taken over long periods of time, they can become ineffective and they can even wreak havoc on your vital organs. Since that is the case, it’s important to seek alternative treatments for ear infections.
How Your Chiropractor Can Save Your Child’s Ears
There have been several studies that have been done on the benefits of chiropractic care when it comes to the treatment of ear infections. With chiropractic care, the inner ear drainage is mobilized. When that happens, the fluid can freely drain from the ear without causing a buildup. Children are then able to build up their own antibodies. With these new antibodies, children recover quickly from the initial infection. This chiropractic treatment focuses on the first vertebra of the neck that are on the back of the skull. This is the section where the fluid collects. When the fluid is released, it can drain properly and the child receives relief.
The New Way to Treat Your Ears
According to certain studies, children who receive chiropractic care for their ear infections benefit greatly. One study showed that 93% of children who received this treatment obtained relief. Since there is tangible proof that chiropractic care can treat ear infections, it may be better to utilize this innovative treatment before taking antibiotics or getting surgery.
