Does your Bountiful infant or toddler suffer from ear infections? If so, your child is not alone. Ear infections (otitis media) are the most common reason for visits to Provo pediatricians. Myringotomy and tympanostomy (ear tube surgery) are the second most common surgeries in children under two (circumcision is the first).1
If you have been dealing with frequent ear infections, you probably know how most Bountiful pediatricians treat them: by prescribing antibiotics. You probably also know that this treatment is not always effective and risks future problems caused by antibiotic-resistant strains. Some Bountiful doctors have stopped prescribing antibiotics for otitis media because of these reasons.
There is a safer way to treat ear infections in Bountiful kids: chiropractic treatment. Chiropractic manipulation enables the fluid to drain out of affected ears. This allows natural antibodies to kill existing infection and prevent further infection.
Chiropractic treatment for ear infections works like chiropractic treatment for other conditions: it helps the body heal itself. In this case, it allows the ear to do what it is designed to do. In addition, chiropractic manipulation for ear infection is safe and requires no antibiotics, dangerous anesthesia, or surgery.
New York chiropractic physician Joan Fallon has published research that demonstrates the effectiveness of chiropractic treatment for children’s ear infections. For more information about her study, see http://www.acatoday.org/content_css.cfm?CID=69
