Have you been in the office lately for your adjustment? If so, you probably have seen some children running around before and after their adjustments. You may have thought, why would a child need to be adjusted? Did you know that CHIROPRACTIC can help with ear infections? This is just one of the many reasons we love adjusting children.
Ear infections (otitis media) are the most common illness affecting babies and young children at a rate of 10 million new cases every year. Otitis media can be either bacterial or viral and accounts for more than 35% of pediatric visits a year.
Most cases of otitis media are treated with antibiotics, which do nothing to fight off viruses and according to many research studies, are often not much more effective than the body’s own immune system.
It is also known that repeated doses of antibiotics can lead to drug-resistant bacteria. Surgery to implant ear tubes is another common practice when dealing with more severe cases of ear infections. Although the treatment is effective in most cases, it requires a general anesthesia, which is never a minor thing for a small child.
More parents are considering chiropractic to help their children with chronic ear infections.
