Chiropractic Care and ear infections
Chiropractic care and ear infections: not a combination most people are familiar with. But chiropractic care for ear infections is an alternative to antibiotics. Most doctors agree that we are overusing antibiotics. Chiropractic care is a safe natural alternative to this common problem, especially in children. When a spine is adjusted properly, the ear is allowed to drain and the body can build up their own antibodies and recover faster.
How a chiropractor helps ear infections
This is how it works: When chiropractor Dr. Haines aligns the spinal vertebrae to take pressure off of a nerve, it ultimately allows the body to heal itself. Adjusting the spine can help prevent fluid from building up inside the ears. When the spine is adjusted, it allows the ear canals to open up and the middle ear will drain fluid, thereby preventing any further ear infection. When performing an alignment on children, Dr. Haines takes special care to apply only slight pressure rather than the more forceful manipulation sometimes used with adults. With infant, the adjustment only involves the pressure it would take to indent the skin of a ripe peach.
