How To Heal A Stubborn Ear Infection
Ear infections may be common, but they are not normal. Adults, children, babies and newborns can get them.
As parents, it makes us feel so helpless. Our child is suffering from ear infection symptoms but there seems little that we can do. No wonder reoccurring ear infections account for a huge number of pediatrician visits.
The traditional approaches include:
Antibiotic Therapy: This may be effective for acute bacterial infections, but many cases are viral, for which antibiotics are useless.
Tubes In The Ears: Surgical implantation of artificial drainage tubes require the administration of a risky anesthesia and then the tubes often fall out! Tubes can cause more ear problems then they fix (even for middle ear infections).
However, many parents are choosing a more conservative approach for inner ear infections and pain that many families might not consider in chiropractic care.
Chiropractors make a thorough examination to locate the ear issue and then make adjustments to reduce nerve disturbances that may make the ears prone to infection. Ear drops and medication can help, but chiropractic care uses the bodies natural holistic healing methods to fight blocked or painful ears without antibiotics.
Our bodies have an incredible capacity to fight infection. When that ability is impaired, it means something else is going on. Chiropractors focus on the integrity of the nervous system to increase the bodies ability to fight off any infection or repair any injury.
It surprises many to learn that some of the nerves that control, regulate and monitor the ear begin in the brain stem. These nerves then continue down the spinal cord and exit out from between the bones of the spinal column.
Changes to the function of the bones in the upper neck may compromise the quality of the nerve signals to and from the brain. This can affect the ability of any organ or tissue or in this case your child’s ear. These “nerve misfires” stop your body from being able to defend itself from infection and earache.
Nerve compromise is often accompanied by abnormal tension to the muscles that support the spine. Besides “protecting” the spine from further compromise, these muscle spasms can exert pressure on nearby lymphatic drainage ducts. This prevents natural drainage, further compounding the problem.
What Chiropractic Care Does For Your Body
Our approach is simple. Since chiropractic care is not a treatment for infections of any type, when parents bring their child for us to check, we look specifically for distortions in the upper spine. If nerve tension is detected, we gently reduce it with safe and natural chiropractic adjustments. This helps restore nervous system integrity.
For a child or infant, this usually requires little more than a light touch with our fingertip at just the right place and direction.
Parents love our approach. We explain everything in detail and in advance. Our adjustment approach at our office is safe and results are achieved naturally.
