Chiro Care and Acute Ear Infections

Chiropractic adjustments have a positive effect on children with acute ear infections. The Journal of Vertebral Subluxation Research 2004 published a study that looked at 21 children with acute otitis media (ear infection). All of the children had acute inflammation in the inner ear with a red and bulging tympanic membrane (ear drum) accompanied by an increased average oral temperature of over 100 degrees F. After the chiropractic adjustments, the red and bulging tympanic membrane returned to normal in 95% of the children and a decrease in average oral temperature to 98.6 degrees F.
