Chiropractic and Ear Infections: by Dr. Nathan Servey, your Victoria, MN Chiropractor
By this point, I hope you know (but it's worth repeating), neurologically-based chiropractic is not JUST for pain. Our adjustments help your nervous system communicate and work correctly which helps you as a WHOLE person heal and function better.
Today I want to 'talk' about an issue near-and-dear to my heart. EAR INFECTIONS... (especially in kiddos) and how chiropractic care can help.
When I was a kid, I struggled with chronic ear infections. If you've ever had an ear infection, you know that they can be painful, annoying, stubborn, and have lasting consequences. Like many kids, I went to the medical doctor and was prescribed antibiotics (which may or may not relieve the symptoms). This happened 2-4 times a year for many, many years. I shudder when I think about how many courses of antibiotics I was prescribed! Let's just say, the antibiotics weren't 'fixing' anything. Eventually, the ear infections got so bad that the medical doctor recommended ear surgery (aka: "tubes in my ears"). This was only the beginning of my ear and sinus issues.
A BETTER WAY
Chiropractic is safe, effective, and corrects the underlying PROBLEM... not the symptoms! This means that chiropractic helps kids stay ear infection- free by improving nervous system function rather than immediately resorting to powerful antibiotics and surgery which can have lasting side-effects. Chiropractic should be the FIRST option!
The mission in our office is to educate as many people as we can about true health and true healing. This can only be done by YOUR body. We can help.
Do the kids (and parents) in your life a favor... send them this article. Let them know neurologically-based chiropractic care is safe and effective when it comes to their kids health. -Dr. Nate
