Providing Burlington With Natural Means to Fight Arthritis that Are Both Effective and Affordable
Unfortunately most parents are not aware of the drugless options when it comes to their children’s ear infections. There have been many clinical studies conducted and one found that 93% of all kids given drugless chiropractic care improved, most within a week or two! Another study demonstrated that the effects of the adjustments can last for up to 6 months.
Between our two office locations, one in Mississauga and one in Burlington, we’ve seen many children’s ear infections heal with chiropractic care.
For yourself and your affected child, with ear infections, you can expect sleepless nights and loss of appetite while your child screams in pain. You feel so bad for them and wish you could just take it all away. How frustrated you feel as they seem to keep coming back. You feel helpless when the antibiotics don’t seem to work for long. Maybe your family doctor has even recommended surgery.
If the infection is viral, then antibiotics will be useless. Repeated doses as well can lead to drug-resistant bacteria creating superbugs and ultimately leaving your child in pain. Some studies (Lancet Journal 2006) have shown that even with bacterial ear infections, antibiotics can be of little help.
Another common treatment for chronic ear infections is ear tube surgery. According to a study done at the Children’s Hospital in Boston, at least 25% of ear tube surgeries performed are unnecessary. Other research supports requirements for the kids who have had the surgery to have further repeated ear surgeries throughout childhood.
How does it work? The ear canal is connected to nerves in the upper neck. If these nerve roots are “stressed” by the muscles and alignment of the spine and therefore not working properly, the ear canal will not drain, clogging them which can then get infected.
Using gentle techniques that are safe for infants and toddlers, we’ve been able to help many children recover naturally from ear infections.
Stress on these nerves can also affect balance.
Here’s what one scientific study had to say about chiropractic and ear infections…
“93% of all episodes improved, 75% in 10 days or fewer and 43% with only one or two treatments” — J Manipulative Physiol Ther 1996
And the great part about our gentle chiropractic care helping your child heal from ear infections is that studies confirm it has a lasting effect. In the Journal of Clinical Chiropractic Pediatrics, research showed that even 6 months after chiropractic treatments, 9 out of 10 children did not have another ear infection occur in that time.
