Lafayette Chiropractors May Help Ear Infections

Chiropractic Treatment for Ear Infections

Ear infections are not a condition you’d normally associate with Lafayette chiropractors, but chiropractic care can make a difference when you or your child is suffering from ear infection discomfort. For most people, a trip to the doctor, and then the pharmacy to get antibiotics, is the standard treatment protocol for ear infections, but as you’re about to realize, there are other ways to address the problem.

A Common Childhood Problem

Ear infections and children seem to go hand in hand. Many children tend to get multiple ear infections every year, indicating the likelihood of a larger problem. The infections actually take place in the middle ear when drainage of the Eustachian tube is blocked.   What most people don’t know is that this blockage can be a result of restricted movement in the upper vertebrae. When the middle ear doesn’t drain properly, bacteria have a chance to grow and flourish, causing chronic ear infections and the pain that goes along with them.

Chiropractic Adjustments for Ear Infections

Chiropractic adjustments can help reduce the pain of chronic ear infections because they restore proper movement to the vertebrae, allowing the Eustachian tube to drain correctly. When the tube is draining properly, bacteria don’t have a chance to grow, and you can avoid most of the ear infections that cause so much discomfort. Spinal adjustments also help to remove nerve interference that has the potential to weaken the immune system.

Treating the Cause of the Problem

One of the key factors that make chiropractic treatment so effective is that it centers on treating the underlying cause of a particular health issue instead of just the symptoms. The issue may have to do with the vertebrae not allowing the Eustachian tube to drain, but the pain of an ear infection is how it manifests.

With conventional medicine, medication is given to dull the pain and antibiotics are given in an attempt to clear up the problem, but if the cause isn’t addressed it often continues to happen. This is why some kids have chronic recurring ear infections that never seem to go away completely. Our Lafayette chiropractic doctors are skilled at providing spinal adjustments to both adults and children, and they will communicate openly throughout the entire process.

It’s easy to get caught up in the world of prescription medicines, especially if your child is suffering, but there are non-invasive, drug-free ways to treat most health issues. If you or your child can’t seem to shake recurring ear infections, call our Lafayette chiropractic team at Nutritional & Wellness Complex today for a consultation.
