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.
