Acute otitis media, otherwise known as an ear infection, is one of the top reasons kids visit their pediatricians. The pain is terrible, and recurring infections can lead to hearing, speech and learning problems in young children. Unfortunately, repeated treatment with antibiotics and pain medication can lead to unwanted side effects. Fortunately, chiropractic care effectively provides relief and prevents future ear infections naturally, without drugs. If someone in your family struggles with ear infections, Irvine chiropractor Dr. John Lee can help.
Chiropractic care for children—and adults—with ear infections is a natural, effective way to resolve the underlying problems triggering the infections. Irvine chiropractor Dr. Lee has found that one of the biggest factors impacting ear health is the alignment of the neck, particularly the C1-C3 upper cervical vertebrae. Young children are particularly vulnerable to misalignments here for the following reasons:
Chiropractic care can successfully resolve these ear infection triggers, both in children and adults. Dr. Lee is able to very gently and safely adjust the cervical spine vertebrae of babies and children. When he does this, it relieves interference on the nervous system, enabling a child’s (or adult’s) immune system to work better to stave off frequent infection. This gives the Eustachian tubes a better chance to drain, helps families sleep better and provides faster pain relief.
