Pediatric Ear Infection Treatment
What Can a Pediatric Chiropractor Do For Your Child?
It’s no wonder pediatric chiropractors see so many children with ear infections. It is, after all, the #1 reason children are taken to the doctor’s office. The real question is this: What can the chiropractor do to treat this painful problem?
One important point to understand is that chiropractic care is focused especially on chronic ear infections, making adjustments to treat & relieve ongoing and recurring flare-ups that go far beyond temporary discomfort.
One Study’s Findings on Chiropractic Treatment
One study, from the Journal of Clinical Chiropractic Pediatrics, is an excellent indicator of what is possible from treatment. 332 children, all with chronic ear infections, were tracked for 6 months, beginning with their initial visit to a chiropractor. Here’s what they found.
In those 6 months, 80% of the subjects had no re-occurrences after that first appointment. They were seen at intervals of 4 to 6 weeks for follow up visits during that time to make adjustments and track their progress.
While this is only an initial study in the field, it is very promising and the results are extremely satisfactory, especially for the young patients themselves!
Because no medications are used and it is purely non-invasive, pediatric chiropractic treatments offer a safer, more holistic approach to a child’s health. Ear infections are the #2 reason for surgery in children 2 years and under, so the chiropractor is another avenue that should be considered, if only due to the risks in operating on someone at such a young age.
