How Chiropractic Can Help Your Child
Even mainstream research has shown that chiropractic care has had great success with treating childhood ear infections. While we don’t treat ear infections in the traditional sense, we try to assess what the root cause of the infection is and/or what’s contributing to it.
We will check the child’s neck vertebrae to see if they’re aligned correctly and if they’re not, we’ll gently adjust them and put the neck back in alignment to allow the nerves to function better.
We’ve seen in numerous cases that removing the neck subluxations can help speed up the healing process of the infection or even resolve the infections. And in some instances it even reduces the instances of infections for those who experience multiple or chronic infections. This can happen as the main cause of the ear infections a lot times is due to the shape of the infant’s ear canal as it’s not fully developed to be conducive to proper drainage. So fluids are more easily retained in the ear, and over time can cause infections.
The traditional medical model for dealing with childhood ear infections is to treat with medication, antibiotics or even tubes in the ears. While this is the route some doctors like to go, we like use chiropractic as an alternative and more conservative way to try to alleviate these symptoms. If your child still experiences symptoms we do refer out to medical doctors.

We are so thrilled for our son’s response to his chiropractic treatment at Choice Chiropractic & Wellness Center. After so many ear infections and antibiotics, we needed a new approach.
Parker (our son) started walking the day after his first appointment, which was really exciting.
He has had much fewer ear infections, as well as fewer runny noses. We really did not know what would happen at the beginning since he was so young (13 months), but we are so very happy with the results.*Mike & Cathy
