Hey, it’s Dr. Troy here, the Vancouver chiropractor.
I want to talk about ear pain, ear infections and fluid in the ears.
A lot of people say, “How can chiropractic help with ear infections or fluid or ear pain?” The answer is simple. If you look at neurology, what innervates the inner ear? It’s the nerve system. We know the upper neck, the upper cervical, specifically the skull, c1, c2, there’s neuronal fibers that come off that innervate the inner ear; that innervate the cochlea, the semicircle canals; that innervate the Eustachian tube, which is the tube that goes from the inner ear that drains into the back of the throat.
I can’t tell you how many patients, especially children, even adults, but mostly children, will present with ear infections and fluid in their ears. When you get them adjusted, if there’s a misalignment in the upper cervical spine, it’s going to put pressure on the nerves that control the eustachian tube opening and closing. So you adjust them and they tend to respond very quickly.
The traditional method is to prescribe antibiotics and see what happens. Many times parents are going round after round after round of antibiotics and not really getting the problem solved. Ear infections and ear pain can be very painful for children, very frustrating and taunting and taxing on mom and dad because you don’t know what to do. You feel helpless. So chiropractic might be right for these conditions. The only way to know is to get checked.
Dr. Scott Mendelsohn, who is a pediatrician, said that any child who has an ear infection that doesn’t seek chiropractic first, then the parents should have their head examined. I thought that was kind of interesting. But to make the point, let’s see if chiropractic can help.
That’s why we get on YouTube. That’s why we get out there and tell the story. A lot of people don’t know that a few adjustments might help clear up the problem and save you sleepless nights, and the kids sleepless nights, and rounds of antibiotics that can be detrimental to their overall gut health and immune system.
So if you’re interested in coming in to get checked to see if we can help call (360) 260-6903.
