Childhood Ear Infections

Ear Infections are the most common illness children experience. They mean severe pain, missed school days, and increased doctor visits.

The cause of most these infections is a block in the Eustachian tubes in the ear. Fluid in the ear back up and clog instead of draining properly.

Chiropractic adjustments change all of this for children by adjusting the vertebrae in the neck and spine into the right position. When these subluxations are relieved,  the fluid drains, and ear infections are reduced if not avoided. Antibiotic use is also decreased.

When is the right time to treat your child for an ear infection? Before it starts. The crucial point is when you first notice your child has a stuffy nose, and the fluids are still clear or when you first notice they are cloudy.

Severe and repeated infections also cause scar tissue to be build-up in the ear which can lead to hearing problems.

So should you bring your child in for every stuffy nose? That’s up to you. The best way to reduce your child’s healthcare issues is to start them with chiropractic care as early in their lives as you can. Their bones are more pliable and eventually “hold” their adjustments better than when care is initiated when they are older. Children who receive regular chiropractic have fewer colds and ear infections.

Your child can suffer less with chiropractic care. That’s important to you as a parent and to all of us at Byron Family Chiropractic.
