No More Ear Infections With Chiropractic Care!
By Donna Stark
Your child is crying and tugging at those sweet little ears, and as a parent, you feel helpless. Even though you are certain it's another ear infection, there is little that can be done about it until you can get your child in to see a pediatrician. Unfortunately, this isn't the first time you've been to this rodeo, is it? You've been at this point many times before, and although relief typically comes a few hours after you get some antibiotics in your sweet baby, it still isn't fast enough. Don't you wish there was something more you can do for your little one? Have you thought about chiropractic care for advice and help?
Breaking the Cycle of Ear Infections
Ear infections are bad enough for young children, but when they occur over and over and over again, they can become a serious matter. And although they are very common, they should not be taken lightly. Generally, there are three main courses of treatment for ear infections. Let's take a quick look at them here.
You know the drill. You take your child in to see you pediatrician and you walk out with a prescription for an antibiotic. Seems pretty cut and dry, and for many children, that's all they need. But for others, that prescription may not be enough because the source of the problem wasn't actually addressed. On top of that, your child may have to deal with some unpleasant side effects as well.
When your child has enough ear infections, your pediatrician may recommend the implantation of ear tubes. These help to relieve the pressure in the ear that is caused by fluid build-up. This is a fairly common procedure with young children and is generally very successful, but as with any surgery, there are risks involved.
You have an option that includes prescription medications and an option that includes an invasive procedure, so what's next? How about the option that is extremely effective, safe for little ones, and completely all-natural? Yes, you read that right! Chiropractic care is an all-natural option that doesn't include any medications or invasive procedures. In fact, it actually encourages the body to heal itself! Here's how it works.
- Reduces swelling surrounding the eustachian tubes
- Reduces nerve interference that may make ears more susceptible to infections
- Encourages the body to drain the fluid as it is meant to
- Strengthens the body's immunity
- Improves sleep which allows the body time to rest and heal
- Reduces the risk of future infections
