ear infection/ acute otitis media
Ear infections are most common in young children and babies. It is typically caused from excessive fluid in the eustachian tube that leads to the ear from the nose and causes swelling and pain. This swelling can happen from allergies, cold or sinus infection, overgrown adenoids, tobacco smoke, pacifiers, teething and more.
Chiropractic adjustments can help relieve the pressure in the ear and help the ear drain. Therefore, allowing the ear to heal and the pain to remiss. We usually find by discovering the underlying issue of the ear infection (many times it is something the baby/child is eating or drinking that their body is not ready for yet or they have a sensitivity too), the child simply feels better in general, and this makes Mom’s, Dad’s and babies very happy!
