Chiropractic care for ear infections
A natural solution to relieve and manage pain caused by ear infections.
Understanding ear infections and how routine chiropractic care can help manage them.
What is an Ear Infection?
Ear infections are most often caused by bacterial or viral infections that can affect the inner, middle, or outer ear. This occurs when the eustachian tubes (the small tubes that run from the ear to the back of the throat) become swollen or blocked, causing a build-up of fluid.
Ear infections are so common that 80 percent of children will be diagnosed with an ear infection before they turn three years old. Although it can be emotionally difficult to see your child in pain, immediately prescribed antibiotics may not always be the best solution to ease their discomfort.
How Can Chiropractic Care Help Ear Infections?
Chiropractic care is a great non-invasive way to relieve pain caused by ear infections. Chiropractic treatment offers a non-invasive, drug-free, and extremely effective treatment for ear infections. Chiropractic care can reduce the use of over-the-counter pain medications.
Chiropractors provide gentle, non-invasive adjustments that reduce restrictions in joints. This chiropractic adjustment for an ear infection is helpful in reducing joint inflammation that causes pain, restores joint mobility, and improves the function of the nervous system. Spinal health allows the body to better manage symptoms associated with ear infections.
In order to see if chiropractic can help, a detailed physical examination should be performed, and if necessary, x-rays should be taken. Fortunately, Beach Cities Chiropractic offers on-site digital x-rays that can be reviewed immediately. This examination and consultation will determine if chiropractic can help. If so, a tailor-made care plan for ear infection treatment will be created for you.
