To many parents of young children, coping with ear infections may seem almost as routine as changing wet diapers. Many children — somewhere between 50 percent and 85 percent, depending on the study — have at least one ear infection by age 3. There are numerous problems with antibiotic usage for children with ear infections such as allergic reactions, GI upset, antibiotic resistance and destruction of the gut’s intestinal flora leading to yeast proliferation.
Children with ear infections need chiropractic adjustments. In many cases ear infections are observed to disappear after chiropractic care, saving children from ear-tube surgery and antibiotics.
