How to treat an ear infection
Otitis Media (middle ear infection) is common in almost two-thirds of children up to four years of age. The eustacian tube becomes plugged with mucoid material that provides a breeding ground for bacteria to live. The condition is almost always self-limiting, so prescribing antibiotics for it is on the decline.
One way to treat an ear infection in both children and adults is with chiropractic adjustments in the upper neck which help to traction the eustacian tube and encourage drainage. The ears also receive an extensive nerve supply from the spine, so another way to help treat an ear infection is by restoring the spine to its proper alignment, which should result in the return of normal nerve function.
