Chronic ear infections are the most common reason parents must visit the pediatrician. Ear infections are caused by fluid buildup behind the eardrum that causes inflammation in the middle ear. These are very uncomfortable for kids and can cause trouble sleeping, tugging at their ears, fever, and fussiness.
Chiropractic care is very effective in treating these infections because adjustments target the underlying problem. During these adjustments we will focus on the vertebrae in the top of the neck to improve fluid drainage to reduce the risk of future infections.
Parents have the options of ear drops, antibiotics or even surgery to have tubes places in the child’s ears but chiropractic care is a much safer, more effective option for long-term results.
