Chiropractic Care For Ear Infections
The doctors at Current Chiropractic may be able to help patients suffering from pain associated with ear infections—especially children who have ongoing issues or chronic ear infections.
The cervical vertebrae can become misaligned for a variety of reasons—childbirth, trauma, falls, or another event. When this occurs, it can disrupt or block proper nerve function, sometimes affecting the eustachian tube. This may lead to fluid buildup in the middle ear and cause earaches and/or ear infections.
Can A Chiropractor Help Alleviate An Earache Or Ear Infection?
For most parents, visiting their child’s pediatrician and receiving antibiotics is the usual treatment for an earache or infection; however, antibiotics are not always effective. If your child is dealing with repeat earaches or ear infections, chiropractic care can alleviate the pain and recurrence of ear infections through a series of upper cervical spinal corrections.
The most common ear infection symptoms include:
- Ear pain
- Loss of balance
Drainage of fluid in the throat
- Difficulty resting or sleeping
- Coughing and runny nose
In most cases, the symptoms and signs of an ear infection can develop rapidly and may initially be mistaken for a common cold.
