Chronic Ear Infections
According to the American Academy of Pediatrics, over five million children suffer from chronic ear infections, resulting in 30 million visits to doctors’ offices and over 10 million prescriptions of antibiotics each year. Half of all the antibiotics prescribed are for ear infections. Symptoms of ear infections may include mild discomfort, irritability, fever or severe pain. Almost half of all children will have at least one middle ear infection before they’re a year old, and two-thirds of them will have had at least one such infection by age three. Frequent ear infections are the second leading cause for surgery in children.
Chiropractic Care For Ear Infections
Misalignment between the head and neck affect the nervous system and prevent the eustachian tubes from properly draining. This creates an environment for fluid to build up and prompt infection.
A New Approach To Ear Infections – Chiropractic Care
Rather than treating the effects with antibiotics or undergoing the risks of surgery, you can seek the help with our chiropractor at Back In Line Chiropractic Spine and Injury. Chiropractic care is a viable, and natural, way to help your child with chronic ear infections. One study shows that after receiving a series of upper cervical corrections, 80% of the children were free of ear infections. Chiropractic care enables the inner ear to open and drain which, in turn, allows the body to resist the buildup of fluid and possible infection. Many children develop their own antibodies and recover quickly and naturally without the use of unnecessary antibiotics and tubes. The discomfort of chronic inner ear infections, lost days of schools for children and lost days of work for parents can can be prevented with gentle chiropractic adjustments from our chiropractor.
If your child is suffering needlessly from ear infections and you are tired of treating the symptoms with dangerous antibiotics or do not want to subject your child to surgery, call our office today and schedule an appointment.
