Battling Ear Infections? Get Chiropractic

By Rachel Carver

Your little one is not sleeping well again. Your precious child is crabby and grabbing one or both ears while desperately clinging to you at 2 a.m. A temperature check reveals a slight fever.

You have been down this road before. You're pretty sure it is an ear infection and decide to call the pediatrician in the morning, after you get a little more sleep.

Did you know another possible solution exists? If you're ready to step out of the vicious cycle of ear infections and antibiotics, give chiropractic care a try.

Ear Infections in Children

Before we go into how chiropractors can help, let's look at why children tend to develop more ear infections than adults. A child's eustachian tube is smaller and more level than an adult's, which makes it easier for fluid in the ear to become trapped. This causes bacteria growth, which can lead to ear infections.

Ear Infection Symptoms

Ear infections usually decrease in children as they grow. Symptoms common in children include:

  • Ear pain, especially while lying down
  • Pulling on an ear
  • Trouble sleeping
  • An increase in crying
  • Trouble hearing
  • Headache
  • Impaired Balance or clumsiness
  • Fever

The Case for Chiropractic Care

Chiropractic care has been shown to be a natural, safe, and drug-free option for treating chronic ear infections in children. After multiple rounds of antibiotics, a gentle alternative can be an appealing option for parents. Chiropractors receive training to properly treat small bodies with non-invasive adjustments.

Additional Benefits of Chiropractic Care

Chiropractic care is safe for all ages. A visit to your neighborhood Joint Chiropractic clinic can improve your child's overall well-being while addressing chronic ear infections.

Doctors of chiropractic focus on the entire body, not just on the one thing that hurts right now. This approach might help your child sleep better, improve their mood, and decrease pediatrician visits. Regular chiropractic care can also speed up the recovery process. This means your child might get well sooner after any illness or injury.
