Best Natural Ear Infection Treatment for Kids | Pediatric Chiropractor in Belmar, NJ
Hi everybody. Today I’m going to continue my series on adjusting toddlers. And one of the reasons we adjust toddlers is because they often get congestion, colds, snotty, runny, right and often that fluid can settle into the inner ears and cause ear infections. Most inner ear infections we know in children are viral, so there’s really no need to be put on an antibiotic so it’s really just struggling and and getting kids to be able to get their ears and their sinuses and all that to drain naturally. And one of the ways we do that is with chiropractic adjustments.
Gentle Adjustments to Help Clear Fluid from the Ears
So this is my patient Axel he’s not feeling so good today. So we’re gonna adjust him today, doctor says he’s got fluid in his ears and mom knows not to put them on an antibiotic for that. We’re just going to clear that out. So Axel’s going to start on his belly, Axel’s got his train today too and just doesn’t want to let it go and I don’t blame him. That’s a Thomas train. Alright, I always start at the bottom so we’re going to make sure we clear out all the subluxations and misalignments of his little spine and Axel likes to get adjusted. He’s a little squirming when I adjust him because it tickles his little spine, right Axel? Right buddy. Okay, especially in this chest up in here, the the upper upper thoracic spine, the nerves are the one that belongs all right, buddy. Okay, especially in this chest up in here, the the upper upper thoracic spine, the nerves are the one that belongs to turn on over. So I was just briefly feeling and I can tell a little bit that he has some swollen lymph nodes in his neck and right those are the nerves that ensure the lymph nodes drain the sinuses drain the nose. So real gentle. Babies and toddlers when we do adjustments, just gentle finger pressures. It’s not like you think like a way an adult gets adjusted. And he has he’s a little subluxated at the top here meaning his spine is a little out of alignment. These are the nerves that go to the inner ears. And if we can reestablish that healthy nerve supply that’ll pull those ear tubes down and allow the ears to drain naturally. Without any medicine. You’re done peanut!
