Treatment For Ear Infections
Ear infections are the most common reason parents take children to their local pediatrician. Some estimates suggest that about two in every three children will deal with an ear infection by the time they reach pre-school. Shockingly, up to one in every two children will have already dealt with multiple by that time. The age at which children are most at risk for an ear infection is a few months before their first birthday. This is an inopportune time for all involved since the baby has trouble communicating the issue and the parent has trouble finding what is making their baby cry more than usual.
It used to be commonplace for pediatricians to recommend a course of antibiotics for ear infections. Nowadays, the “wait-and-see” approach prevails. While this approach seems easy to follow, it is anything but when your baby is crying incessantly and you as a parent are at your wit’s end.
Chances are you’ve heard of countless home remedies for ear infections.

Chiropractors are not interested in a temporary solution, they are interested in healing your child. The science is clear - regular chiropractic care can treat ear infections.
Chiropractors will never give your child a pill to stop an ear infection. Instead, they will rely on their expertise to adjust your child’s spinal column. When the spine is aligned, your child’s body is able to better facilitate healing. It’s pretty straightforward, if you child’s body is aligned and free from pressure, it can function better and even heal itself! This occurs due to roadblocks being removed from your child’s nervous system.
A misalignment of any degree is enough to throw your child’s body out of balance, this leads to a breakdown in communication between the nervous system and the brain. This breakdown in communication can result in certain parts of your child’s body not functioning at their peak, in the case of an ear infection it is the central nervous system. The ear infection is simply your child’s body saying it is under pressure and needs help. Luckily, chiropractors are able to solve the problem through safe, natural adjustments to your child’s spine.
