Chiropractic Care for Ear Infections

By Donna Stark

Fever, irritability, and pain. You are probably thinking, "Not again," aren't you? And if you are thinking that to yourself, you won't be surprised to hear that ear infections are one of the top reasons why parents take their children in to see the pediatrician. Maybe this is the time to finally put an end to the vicious cycle. Instead of heading to the pediatrician's office for yet another round of antibiotics, why don't you bring your sweet little one to your local chiropractor at The Joint Chiropractic? Yes, that's right. Chiropractic care could be the solution you have been looking for!

Risk Factors for Ear Infections

Before we take a look at how chiropractic care can reduce the frequency of ear infections, let's first understand why children are more prone to ear infections than adults. The eustachian tube in a child's ear is smaller and more level than what it is in an adult's ear, which means any fluid that is in the ear will become trapped and won't drain as quickly and easily as it should. This can lead to the rapid growth of bacteria and eventually, an infection.

Signs and Symptoms of an Ear Infection

It's important to note that many children will outgrow this problem, but the months, and sometimes years, leading up until they do can definitely be miserable! Here are just a few of the symptoms associated with recurrent ear infections.

  • Discontent
  • Fever
  • Ear pain
  • Hearing problems
  • Fluid drainage out the ear
  • Sleep issues
  • Balance problems or clumsiness

Chiropractic Care for Ear Infections

Chiropractic care has been shown to be a gentle, effective, and all-natural treatment for chronic ear infections in children. It's completely safe for your little one because it avoids the use of antibiotics and invasive procedures. For many parents who are tired of traveling down the antibiotic path, the chiropractic approach is a much-welcomed change.

But Wait, There's More

In addition to resolving your child's cycle of ear infections, chiropractic care will also improve their overall well-being. You see, the goal of chiropractic care isn't to only focus on the area of the body that is hurting, it's to have a strong focus on the body as a whole! And because of this, you may start to see other improvements in the way your child feels and behaves. You may notice their sleep is better, their moods are more stable, and their trips to the pediatrician are becoming less and less frequent. You simply can't go wrong by establishing chiropractic care in your child's life, so come on in today! The chiropractors at The Joint Chiropractic can't wait to help.
