Tubes in ears: Surgical implantation of artificial drainage tubes require the administration of a risky anesthesia and then, they usually come out.
However, many parents are choosing a more conservative approach:
Chiropractic care: A thorough examination to locate, and specific adjustments to reduce nerve disturbances that may make the ears prone to infection.
Our bodies have an incredible capacity to fight infection. When that ability is impaired, it means something else is going on. Our focus is on the integrity and function of the nervous system.
Nerve CompromiseIt surprises many to learn that some of the nerves that control, regulate and monitor the ear begin in the brain stem, continue down the spinal cord and exit out from between the bones of the spinal column. Changes to the function of the bones in the upper neck may compromise the quality of the nerve signals to and from the brain. Obviously, this can affect the ability of ANY organ or tissue, or in this case, your child's ear to "defend itself" from infection.
Impaired DrainageNerve compromise is often accompanied by abnormal tension to the muscles that support the spine. Besides "protecting" the spine from further compromise, these muscle spasms can exert pressure on nearby lymphatic drainage ducts. This prevents natural drainage, further compounding the problem.
What We DoOur approach is simple. Since chiropractic care isn't a treatment for infections of any type, when a parent brings their child to us to check, we look specifically for distortions in the upper spine. If nerve tension is detected, we gently reduce it with safe, natural, and corrective chiropractic adjustments. This helps restore nervous system integrity. For a child or infant, this usually requires little more than a light touch with our fingertip at just the right place and direction.
Parents love our approach and we explain everything in advance. Our adjusting approach is safe and results are achieved naturally.
