Ear Infections



Does your child suffer with Ear Infections?

Do the Ear Infections keep coming back even after antibiotics?

If you are the parent of a child with ear infections, this message is for you.


As a parent, it makes us feel so helpless. Our child is suffering but there seems little that we can do.  No wonder reoccurring ear infections account for a huge number of pediatrician visits. 


Traditional approaches include: 


Antibiotic therapy:  This may be effective for acute bacterial infections, but most cases are viral and antibiotics are useless for helping viral infections.


Tubes in the Ears:  Surgical implantation of artificial drainage tubes, require the use of a risky anesthesia and the tubes often come out.


Many parents are choosing a more conservative approach...


Chiropractic care:  Disturbance of nerve function can often lead to ear infection.  A thorough examination to locate nerve disturbance is often a very effective approach to ear infections especially in children. 


Our bodies have an incredible capacity to fight infection but this requires the use of the nervous system.  If the nervous system is impaired in its ability to work properly, reoccurring ear infections can be the result.  By finding the impairment in the nervous system and resolving it, the body is able to fight the infections naturally.


We see a great deal of children in our office, many of them because of ear infections.  The methods we use are not only safe and gentle, but very effective at removing the nervous system impairments and allowing the child's own immune system to clear up the infection the way it was designed to.
