Earaches are not often thought of when considering Chiropractic care in Conyers.
However, the Chiropractors at AICA Conyers are able to offer non-invasive treatment solutions that help children and adults who are suffering from some type of ear infection.
Most traditional physicians treat earaches by prescribing some sort of antibiotic.
Recent medical studies show that this approach is starting to have a diminishing return when it comes to permanently killing off harmful bacteria or viruses. This positions Chiropractic care as the most reliable form of treatment when it comes to addressing ear infections.
Many children suffer from multiple ear infections until they reach their early teens.
Infections tend to develop in the middle ear when the Eustachian tube becomes blocked; preventing the mucus in your ear canal from draining. This type of blockage can be caused as a result of restricted movement in your upper vertebrae.
When your middle ear is unable to drain properly, bacteria and other harmful substances are able to grow and spread, infecting your canal.
Depending on the extent of the infection, patients can experience significant pain during this time.
Receiving a spinal adjustment can provide immediate pain relief because of its ability to restore completel movement to your vertebrae, which allows the Eustachian tube to drain built-up mucus.
When your tubes are able to function correctly, bacteria and other harmful substances are not able to grow, which prevents infections from developing over time. Regular adjustments also support healthy nerve circulation, which allows your immune system to respond appropriately to potential threats.
One of the primary differences between Chiropractic care and other traditional forms of medicine is how effective our techniques are for treating the root cause of a particular condition, opposed to masking existing symptoms.
In the case of ear infections, the root cause of the condition is based on how constricted the vertebrae are, which prevents the Eustachian tube from draining. The pain that each patient experiences is simply the signal that tells the patient it’s time to seek medical help.
With traditional medicine, prescription drugs are often used to reduce the pain, but not treat the source of the problem. This approach only focuses on the immediate issue, it does not provide a long-term solution nor does it prevent the infection from recurring.
This is why some children experience chronic ear infections that never seem to completely go away.
