Our children are truly amazing, aren't they? They are so full of life and energy and some of the funniest people around. They this amazing ability to learn and grow at what seems like warp speed. They also have an incredible capacity to heal and bounce back from sickness and illness...provided there is no interference to their innate intelligence or wisdom.
Through the nerdy sciences of anatomy and physiology we know that the spine, nervous system, and immune system all communicate with each other. Any problem in the communication will contribute or create health challenges. More often that not there is interference present in their little developing spines and nervous systems because you and I both know that most children do not regularly receive chiropractic adjustments.
Looking at the nerdy research we see that chiropractic care will help children with ear infections. (see the nerdiness here: http://icpa4kids.org/Chiropractic-Research/Ear-Infection-Otitis-Media/
I see the impact that regular spinal adjustments has in my practice members and their children. I see it in my general health and most importantly I see it in my boys, Derek and Dean. They have both been adjusted since BIRTH! Adjusting an infant just mere moments old or a 3 year old child is vastly different than the type of adjustment that adjusts receive (at least in my office).
Yes you read correctly, I said since birth. Regular adjustments keeps all the body processes working...and not just working but WORKING! Not a one ear infection in my boys. I see the same in my Chiropractic colleagues kids too...no ear infections. It's a beautiful thing...wouldn't you agree?
The typical course of care is antibiotics and then tubes if the infections won't go away (the body loves to reject the tubes btw). More nerd stuff for you - it's known and been shown that the earlier in life antibiotics are given the more likely it is that one may develop asthma and allergies.(see: https://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2016/09/160906085003.htm and http://www.medscape.com/viewarticle/560029 )
If you are the kind of person who needs the OK from the medical community here you go, peep this: https://www.askdrsears.com/topics/health-concerns/childhood-illnesses/ear-infections
But please do more of your own due diligence and on this topic.
We all want the best for our children and we want them to be the best and healthiest possible versions of themselves. That's a no brainer! By including regular chiropractic care into their health care plan will allow their stars to shine brighter than they already are. I say this with absolute certainty because I see it in my children, and I want to see it in your children too...don't you?
Peace and Love!
