WHAT TYPICALLY CAUSES THEM?
When the joints of our top two vertebrae are blocked, a person’s Eustachian tube can collapse on itself due to less muscle tone. When this happens and a person has an increased mucous production (typically due to allergies, a cold, or increased time in the water), the end result typically is an ear infection in the middle ear. This is called Otits Media. Children are more likely to get this ear infection because their Eustachian tubes are harder to drain due to being more horizontally orientated.
SO HOW CAN CHIROPRACTIC HELP?
Dr. Gray uses specific adjustments to aid in not only restoring the function and motion of the top vertebrae, but to the actual ear as well. In turn, opening the Eustachian tube.
WHY IS AN ADJUSTMENT RECOMMENDED OVER ANTIBIOTICS?
Antibiotics have a major concern associated with then: They not only kill the bad bacteria but the good as well. Which can lead to many other problems down the line.
Dr. Gray has patient’s come in all the time to treat this specific problem. If you or your child experience ear infections regularly, please give us a call.
