How Chiropractic Care Helps Chronic Ear Infection in Children
As parents, we want the best for our children. That’s why it is incredibly hard to see our kids going through a tough time – especially when it comes to anything health related.
Chronic ear infections are a common childhood malady that can be the result of the eustachian tubes in a child’s ear not providing adequate drainage from the fluid and mucus that can build up. Children under the age of eight typically still don’t have fully developed immune systems yet, making it more difficult for them to fight off infections. Those younger in age who have chronic ear infections can often experience ear pain and discomfort, as well as dizziness and impaired balance.
Although antibiotics are typically used to treat ear infections, many parents and doctors are concerned about overuse. Pediatric chiropractic care is one treatment option that can help children deal with the pain from ear infections and help prevent future infections.
Our team put together the reasons why you may want to consider chiropractic care for your child’s chronic ear infection treatment, in helping them find relief.
Chiropractic Care Is Non-Invasive
A pediatric chiropractic adjustment is a gentle, non-invasive and non-addictive therapy that reduces joint misalignments. A child’s spine can be out of alignment from the birthing process or from the falls taken as he or she is learning to walk and run.
Chiropractic adjustments improve the functions of the nervous system and increase joint mobility, which translates to more effective pain management when the body experiences it.
Chiropractic Care Is Pain-Free
Children who repeatedly see a doctor often become fearful of treatment, but chiropractic care is pain free. This gives children a positive experience with a healthcare provider. Parents can also relax during chiropractic treatment, knowing that they aren’t causing their child additional pain.
The treatment helps reduce pain in the body, another positive aspect of chiropractic care. This can help the child be more comfortable and fight off another ear infection down the road.
Chiropractic Care Seeks to Restore the Body
Many treatment options for ear infections only deal with the symptoms, not the root problem. Chiropractic care treatment goals are to make the body healthier, allowing it to be more resistant to disease and infections. When the body is in a normal state of alignment, healing comes easier and the immune system can more effectively fight off real infections instead of managing inflammation from pain.
Many children benefit from chiropractic care, with or without chronic ear infections. In fact, pediatric chiropractic adjustments offer many benefits beyond dealing with chronic ear pain and discomfort.
