Ear Infections: Boise Chiropractor Has Researched Answers

Ear Infections: Boise Chiropractor Has Researched Answers

This research (abstract below) published in the Journal of Pediatric, Maternal & Family Health discusses a case of a 4 year old who had invasive surgery to put tubes in his little ears to help prevent repeat ear infections. Millions of people have learned over the last 120 years that chiropractic treatment, like the care I provide here in Boise, has a dramatic affect on the how a young body handles and heals itself from ear infections.

Chiropractic care specifically removes subluxations, which are nerve signal restrictions (think of it as similar to a clogging artery restricting blood flow although it happens differently of course). When you understand this, then you understand chiropractic treatment improves your body’s internal healing ability and adaptability. That allowed this young boy’s body to begin to drain the ears properly and stop having ear infections.

Don’t have surgery. Try chiropractic first. It’s natural, safe, costs way less, and feels way better! 

Objective: To describe the chiropractic care of a child with a history of failed tympanostomy tube surgery and recurrent ear infections.

Clinical Features: A four-year old male presented for care with a history of failed tympanostomy tube surgery. The child was scheduled for repeat tympanostomy surgery. Vertebral subluxations were found and adjusted in the cervical and thoracic spine.

Intervention and Outcome: The patient’s subluxations were adjusted using the Activator hand held adjusting instrument. On the third visit, the patient’s mother opted out of her son’s scheduled surgery.  The patient attended care with the recommended frequency at 2-3 times for the first two weeks, followed by once a week for eight weeks, for a duration of 12 weeks.

Conclusion: The successful chiropractic care of an infant with chronic ear infections is described. This study provides supporting evidence that infants with similar complaints may benefit from chiropractic care.
