How Chiropractors Can Help with Children's Ear Infections

Ear infections are something that most children experience at some point early on in life, though they can also occur in adults. Unfortunately, ear infections can be very painful for kids and, in some cases, there isn't much that can be done other than to let them run their course. However, recent research has discovered a link between chiropractic health and ear infections in children.

Signs of Ear Infections in Children

Parents should be aware of the early signs of ear infections in children so they can act swiftly. These include a complaint of pain and/or pressure in the ear, inability to hear or communicate properly, ringing or popping of the ears, and balance/coordination problems. If you suspect your child may have an ear infection, it is important to see a doctor promptly.

The Link Between Ear Infections and the Spine

Recent studies have found that, in some cases, chiropractic care can help to treat ear infections in children and even prevent them from occurring in the first place. In fact, it has been found that there are many links between tubes in the ear and the spinal vertebrae. Furthermore, specific problems with vertebrae can prevent the tubes in the inner ear from properly draining, which can cause ear infections in children and adults alike.

In most cases, chiropractic adjustments performed by an experienced chiropractor can help to alleviate ear pain by promoting the healthy drainage of these fluids through the tubes in the ear. And with properly-delivered, ongoing chiropractic care, it is even possible that ear infections could be prevented in the future. This is in addition to the numerous other health benefits chiropractic care can bring young ones, such as improved sleep and even behavior.
