Many people are surprised to find out that help with chronic pediatric ear infections is one of the best researched benefits of chiropractic care. In addition to research, the media have actually helped publicize these benefits as well.
It is important to note that chiropractic does not “treat” ear infections any more than we “treat” any other disease. Rather than managing a disease, the goal instead is to look at the overall functioning of the nervous system and for misalignments in the spine, and consider how these may be impacting the overall health of the patient, child or adult. Misalignments in the upper cervical spine in particular can have damaging effects on the sinuses, ears, nose, throat, immunity, and more.
At New Day we use the same gentle approach with children as we do with adults, gently bringing the system into a state of ease and alignment that increases the body’s natural ability to heal. Chiropractic care is great for any age, and especially helpful for babies and kids with rapidly growing and changing systems. The best way to ensure that your child’s growth and development occurs on a solid foundation is to have their spines regularly checked!
