Most parents of infants and toddlers will tell you how their little one couldn’t sleep all night because of ear pain, and had to be put on antibiotics. The more severe cases even end up in surgery. Otitis media or ear infections account for almost 35% of all pediatric visits. And ask any parent, they just want some sort of ear infection relief. Despite not being in favor of either surgery or antibiotics, parents end up going for them so that their kids can be free of pain. What few parents realize is that if the infection is caused by bacteria, the antibiotics will work fine; but if it’s a virus there will be little or no relief. The alternative is to try and let the body heal itself through alternative methods like chiropractic.
Chiropractic care is a non-invasive, drugless alternative that tries to heal the root cause of the pain or disease through readjusting and realigning the spine. In the case of children, ear infection relief from chiropractic care is very effective with success rates as high as 80%. Unlike adults, there is no vigorous massaging here; instead the chiropractic practitioner eases the pain from accumulation of middle ear fluid through slight maneuvers that are not in the least bit painful. With regular chiropractic care, it is actually possible for a child to get ear infection relief for a long time.
With ear infections and increased pain, children become irritable and in extreme cases, their speech development also slows down. Regularly putting them on antibiotics gradually builds up a resistance within their system, and soon the antibiotics stop having any effect at all. Stressed out and worried, parents then look to surgery and getting tubes to relieve the child’s pain. With chiropractic care, it is possible to avoid these. By gently massaging the child’s tubes and spine, the chiropractic practitioner can help the liquid drain out from the ear. After a few sessions, around -8 for chronic ear infections, the child will not only get ear infection relief; you will also notice an increased appetite and sound sleep.
Chiropractic therapy, while taking care of the ear infection, also improves the body’s overall health and gives a boost to the immune system. Spinal readjustment and realignment frees up stiff joints and improves the child’s motor skills, too. So the child is not only ear infection free, but also more energetic, and yes, very happy.
