How Pediatric Chiropractic Can Help Ear Infections

According to an article in ScienceDaily®, more than 80% of children will experience at least one ear infection before they turn 3. A common childhood condition that affects kids of various ages, ear infections are typically treated with antibiotics or tubes. For parents, however, looking for a safe, drug-free solution to ear infections, chiropractic may help.

Common Symptoms

Children with ear infections typically exhibit one or more of the following symptoms:

  • Ear pain and tugging
  • Crying at times that aren’t typical
  • Difficulty swallowing
  • Drainage from ear
  • Fever
  • Loss of appetite
  • Sleep disturbances
  • Vomiting

How Can Chiropractic Help?

The nerves that come out at the top of the neck (C1-C4) actually weaken the Eustachian tube. When those nerves are irritated at the upper part of the neck, then the Eustachian tube can’t drain properly. Chiropractic allows those nerves to function well so that the Eustachian tube can drain and the body can function the way it was supposed to. As a result, children can experience fewer, if any, ear infections through noninvasive and gentle chiropractic care.

A Success Story

We are passionate about helping children experience better health and relief from conditions such as ear infections. One young patient of ours had had multiple rounds of antibiotics and had tubes put in. After only a few short months of chiropractic care, the little boy no longer needed antibiotics. The ear infections cleared up, and the baby’s the happiest he’s ever been.

If your child’s been suffering from ear infections, we encourage you to contact the practice today for an appointment!
