One clinical study found that 93% of all kids given this drugless treatment improved, most within a week or two. Another found the ear infections did not reoccur even 6 months later.
Does your child suffer from ear infections? If so, there may be hope
Ear infections can be excruciatingly painful.
Sleepless nights. Loss of appetite. Pulling on the ears. Your child screams in pain. You feel so bad for them and wish you could just take it all away.
And they keep coming back in your child’s ears. Antibiotics don’t seem to help for long. Maybe surgery has even been recommended.
Conventional thinking is to treat the infection with antibiotics. But there are many problems with this approach. The infection can be viral, making the antibiotics useless. Also, repeated doses can lead to drug-resistant bacteria, creating superbugs and leaving your child still screaming in pain. Studies also confirm that even in bacterial infections, antibiotics are of little help (Lancet Journal 2006).
In addition to that, over half a dozen medical studies have proven early use of antibiotics causes asthma in children. The most recent study being in the 2007 medical journal Chest, stating…
“asthma was significantly more likely to develop in children who had received antibiotics in the first year of life at age 7 years.”
Another all too common treatment for chronic ear infections is ear tube surgery. The problem with surgery is at least 25% of ear tube surgeries performed are unnecessary, according to a study done at the Children’s Hospital in Boston. Other research shows that of the kids who get tubes, many require repeated ear surgeries throughout their childhood.
A Drugless Solution To Ear Infections
My name is Dr. Jeff Awender. I’m the clinical director at Tune-Ups Chiropractic and since 1961, we have seen many children’s ear infections heal with chiropractic care. This gentle, drugless approach I use to help ear infections has been clinically proven to help your child get well and stay well.
The ear canal is related to tiny muscles and nerves in the upper neck. If these nerves and muscles are “stressed” and not working properly, the ear canal will not drain. The ears will become clogged and then infected.
Using gentle techniques that are safe for infants and toddlers, I’ve been able to help many children recover naturally from ear infections.
Here’s what one scientific study had to say about chiropractic and ear infections…
“93% of all episodes improved, 75% in 10 days or fewer and 43% with only one or two treatments” —J Manipulative Physiol Ther 1996
And the great part about our gentle chiropractic care helping your child heal from ear infections is that studies confirm it has a lasting effect. In the Journal of Clinical Chiropractic Pediatrics, research showed that even 6 months after chiropractic treatments, 9 out of 10 children did not have another ear infection occur in that time.
