How Chiropractic Care Helps Ear Infections

One common reason to bring your child to a chiropractor is to help improve chronic ear infections. Chronic ear infections occur when your child has fluid build up inside their middle ear cavity. That fluid causes the infection, and the pain your child feels when they say, “mommy, my ear hurts”.

The reason the fluid is trapped in their ear, is because the muscles surrounding the Eustachian tubes are spasming, and blocks the fluid from draining. When you visit the chiropractor, the adjustments we will make to your young child will help those spasms stop.

Chiropractic Care and Ear Infection Research

A 2011 study conducted by Pohlman and Holton-Brown, published in the Journal of Chiropractic Medicine that reviewed 49 studies proved that there is no evidence to prevent using chiropractic care to help ear infections, and there is no safety issues either.

A chiropractic adjustment is intended to help the normal functioning of the nervous system be restored so the body can heal itself without the use of drugs or surgery. That is why it is perfect for your little one.
