peds chiropractor for ear infection - experiences?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

would love to hear from those who have tried a pediatric chiropractor for your child's ear infections.  we have our first appointment this week, and hoping for good results.

 

DD got a few bad, back to back ear infections at one year old, and had tubes placed.  it's one year later (she's 2.5 now), and she's had a few more ear infections.  her pediatrician just told us today that one tube is out now.  :(   her latest ear infection is somewhat cleared via antibiotics, but still has some fluid and a bit of redness.  i *really* hate giving her antibiotics, and *really, really* don't want to have another tube placed, so i'm hoping for pediatric chiropractor success.

 

i've used a chiro myself in the past, and am totally comfortable with peds chiro care - i understand that the adjustments they use are really gentle.  if your child got ear infection relief from the chiro, how many visits did it take?

Don't know how long for a kid to notice changes, but for myself I know the pressure relief from an adjustment is almost instant.  I'm prone to sinus infections that include fluid in the ears and once I started to see my chiro regularly, I actually stopped getting ear issues alltogether and my sinus problems are less frequent with far less severity and duration.  So far DD has seen a chiro from 6wks on and has been ear infection-free, she's 14mos now.  The sdjusments are more of a massage for kiddos, no real cracking, just gentle pressure to move things.

Thanks! Her first appt went really well today, and all fingers crossed for good results! I'll be so so psyched if we can avoid more antibiotics and tubes for ear infections.
