Minnesota Chiropractor speaks about ear infections, children and Chiropractic.
Adults and children can get otitis media or ear infections, but children are more prone to them. Did you know that 3 out of every 4 kids will have an ear infection by the time they are 3 years of age? Antibiotics and surgery are the medical way of treating them and not always successful or necessary.
Misalignments of the spine can put physical pressure on to the ear canal and can interfere with the nerve flow to the ear itself. Medicines only mask the problem, and in the case of antibiotics, can create a susceptiblity to more infections for the years to come.
Consider gentle chiropractic adjustments to help with your child’s ear infection. No medications and no surgery.
