From Dr. Waldron: Ear infection? Research shows that chiropractic can help

ear-infections-2016-bpimg-700x350Did you know chiropractic care has almost zero side effects when used to reduce symptoms associated with ear infections?

A study, published in the Journal of Manipulative and Physiological Therapeutics, compared drug treatments with chiropractic care, finding that with chiropractic care, “93 percent of all episodes improved, 75 percent in 10 days or fewer and 43 percent with only one or two treatments. Young age, no history on antibiotic use, initial episode (vs. recurrent) and designation of an episode as discomfort rather than ear infection were factors associated with improvement with the fewest treatments.”

That means nearly half of the patients in the study showed reduced symptoms after only one to two visits to the chiropractor.

This study also found that in young children, limited medical intervention and increased chiropractic care helps to decrease the symptoms of ear infections faster than allopathic care. The good news is that, according to the American Chiropractic Association, six months after chiropractic care, 80 percent of children were infection-free.

If you or someone you know has a child who experiences frequent ear infections, call our office today at 425-778-9600 for a consultation.
