Anyone can get an ear infection but they are more common in children and they can make for a very unhappy kid. Something so painful and upsetting to both you and your child can be worrisome and frustrating, especially when they become a chronic problem. Ear infections are the number one reason for pediatrician visits—especially in the wintertime when they tend to be more prevalent. The most common treatment is a round of antibiotics, but most will resolve without them. More often, parents are turning to chiropractors to help with their children’s overall health. Today we look at the benefits of using chiropractic care for ear infections.
Symptoms of ear infections include:
- Cold symptoms including a clear runny nose turning yellow or green as the infection sets in
- Ear Pain and/or Hearing Loss
- Difficulty Sleeping/Fussiness
- Ear Drainage
- Balance Troubles
Chiropractic care focuses on the restoration of normal, or optimal, body function. We don’t just treat a symptom, but aim to get to the root of the problem. Our goal is to work with the nervous system by doing gentle spine manipulations to affect the entire function of your body. If you or a family member struggles with chronic ear infections it would be a good idea to consider chiropractic care to help ease symptoms and prevent future infections.
A knowledgeable chiropractor knows how all systems of the body—muscular, respiratory, circulatory, digestive, etc.—depend on the proper function of the nervous system. They know how to spot and diagnose. A skilled chiropractor will be able to treat patients of all ages and adjust treatment to accommodate the patient’s needs.
