Ear Infections + Chiropractic
Did you know over 80% of kids have at least one ear infection by age 3 according to NIH. Ear infections are inflammation of the middle ear causing fluid buildup behind the eardrum. Kids’ eustachian tubes are smaller and less flat than adults’ making fluid drainage much more difficult. Some signs of an ear infection are:
tugging at ears
pain in or around the ear
Chiropractic care can help ear infections by improving drainage of the ears. One study showed that 93% of children with ear infections had improved symptoms after receiving chiropractic care. If you know a kiddo who suffers from ear infections send them our way to see if we can help!
