Ear Infections in Port St. Lucie

Chiropractic Port St. Lucie FL Ear Infections

Ear infections in childhood are all too common, but that does not necessarily mean they are a normal part of the growing process. It is common to think that ear infections are caused by a bacterial infection and to run straight to your doctor or the hospital assuming antibiotics are needed. Even doctors find it difficult to diagnose the cause of an ear infection because the symptoms, including pain, loss of sleep and appetite, vomiting, difficulty hearing, and fever are often the same regardless of the source. Read this article to learn more about finding the best chiropractic care in Port St. Lucie for ear infections.


Ear Infections in Port St. Lucie FL

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.
