Best Natural Ear Infection Treatment | Pediatric Chiropractor in Boulder, CO
Hello, everyone. Dr. Duff here from TCB Chiropractic in Boulder, Colorado. Today, I want to talk about pediatric chiropractic and the real reasons kids get ear infections, and why surgery doesn’t always work.
How Chiropractic Care Helps Our Ears
In our ear canals, there are Eustachian tubes responsible for processing sound and allowing our brains to interpret it. In children, these tubes can often build up infections and fluids from bacterial or viral infections, leading to pain, discomfort, and sometimes even neck pain and headaches. The fluid buildup can extend down into the throat, connecting to the top of the lungs. Chiropractic care offers effective solutions to address this issue. It starts with a thorough examination to assess the ear, checking for signs such as fluid buildup, redness, and, most notably, pain. What many people may not be aware of is the significant connection between nerves and Eustachian tube function, specifically in the C1 to C4 vertebrae. Stress, subluxations, and the cumulative effects of daily activities like looking down at phones can create tension in these nerves, leading to dysfunction in the Eustachian tube. Chiropractic adjustments work to relax these nerves, allowing for better function and reducing the likelihood of ear infections in children.
Chiropractic Care to Avoid Surgeries
In some cases, surgery is recommended to address ear infections. However, this approach may fail to address the root cause, particularly when the nervous system’s structural issues are not considered. Surgery often involves putting a hole in the eardrum and inserting a tube for drainage and airflow. While this can provide temporary relief, it doesn’t address the underlying structural issues related to the nervous system. Chiropractic care serves as an alternative or complementary approach to surgery, addressing the nervous system’s role in ear infections. It helps children overcome ear infections by focusing on the root cause, rather than just alleviating symptoms.
If you have a child experiencing chronic ear infections or have undergone unsuccessful surgeries, consider consulting with a chiropractor to assess potential nervous system stress. Chiropractic care may offer a non-invasive and effective solution to support your child’s health. Thank you for watching. If you have any questions, feel free to reach out to us.
