By Donna Stark
Your child is doing it again. The crying, the fussiness, the lack of sleep. If there is anything that you as a parent don't want your child to go through again, it's this. Are you holding out hope that it's not what you think? How many is that for this year anyway? And aren't you tired of the constant visits to the pediatrician for the same problem, month after month after month? If you want to give your child a permanent solution to their recurring ear infections, come on in to see your local chiropractors at The Joint Chiropractic! They may be able to help.
Recurring Ear Infections
An infection in the ear generally occurs when there is a buildup of fluid, and even though anyone can be affected, young children are often more at risk. This is because their ear canals haven't completely developed and aren't as angled as those in adults. As a result, the fluid that should be draining, doesn't, and the buildup begins. If your child is constantly getting ear infections, you probably already know what symptoms to look for, but let's go ahead and review them below. There may be some you aren't familiar with.
- Pain and discomfort
- Tugging, pulling, or digging at the ear
- Fussiness and irritability
- Trouble with sleep
- Loss of appetite
- Drainage coming from the ear
- Clumsiness or balance issues
- Difficulty hearing quiet sounds
How Chiropractic Care Helps
After a thorough evaluation, your chiropractor will design a treatment plan that is customized to your child's specific needs and physical condition. The adjustments performed on your child are gentle, safe, effective, and completely all-natural, which should thrill you. But you are going to be even more thrilled knowing that your child won't be prescribed any more prescription medications. And, after seeing the results that chiropractic care can bring, you may wonder why you didn't start with this approach sooner. Take a look at how routine chiropractic care can help eliminate ear infections.
