Children and Chiropractic Care
Dr. Dunsky has been treating children with chiropractic care for the past 13 years. There does not need to be a major accident for a child to require chiropractic health care. The birth process alone can distort the natural alignment of the spine which can give birth to neck and back instabilities that go undetected by pediatricians and other health practitioners for years. There is no harm to have an infant, baby, toddler or child checked for Spinal Subluxations. Spinal Subluxations can be caused by many environmental and or internal factors which can be subtle enough to go undetected for years until physiological and biomechanical changes have set in. Every child should be checked for Spinal Subluxations. If Spinal Subluxations are detected they can be safely and easily corrected. Prevention is easier then correction.
Ear Infections and Chiropractic Care
Ear infections are not difficult to treat depending on the timing of the infection. Caught early enough many children have immediate relief. Ear infections, generally speaking, are just blockages in the Eustachian tubes. Gentle spinal adjustments in the neck along with Eustachian traction almost always causes an instant cavitation, release in pressure, and instantly drain in built up fluid which is mainly composed of bacteria that has been sitting in the tube for a prolonged period of time.
The Eustachian tubes in small children are more parallel in nature compared to adults. This causes blockages to happen more commonly then in older children or adults, thus leading to more frequent ear infections. Why does the Tympanic membrane or ear drum bulge in an ear infection? That is due to the built up pressure in the Eustachian tube.
What do you do as a parent? Parents can reduce the effects of ear infections by propping their child's head up at night, avoid bottle drinking in the evening, reduce inflammation by avoiding sugar and taking you child to a skilled chiropractor who can help unblock the Eustachian tubes and correct any Spinal Subluxations that can interfere with the normal function of the body.
While most pediatricians will examine the ear canal, document redness and the infection and then recommend an antibiotic, most ear infections are viral and not bacterial so antibiotics are useless in this situation. Fortunately, there seems to be more and more pediatricians that are refusing to give antibiotics for this infection, I agree.
