Ear Infection Treatment Atlanta – Upper Cervical Chiropractic

Upper cervical chiropractic can be used to treat ear infections.  The upper cervical region of the spine comprises the top two vertebrae in the neck.  It is easy for these bones to become misaligned. When that happens, the spinal cord passing through them can get pinched and pressure put on the nerves.

Upper Cervical Subluxation

This can happen through the trauma of birth or as a result of a whiplash or other neck injury. It has been shown that such a displacement, or upper cervical subluxation as it is correctly termed, can affect the Eustachian tube. This is the small, narrow tube between the middle ear and the pharynx that enables the air pressure to be made equal each side of the eardrum.
If the Eustachian tube cannot operate correctly, then it creates an environment almost perfect for bacteria to multiply. This creates an ideal situation for chronic inner ear infections to thrive. Upper cervical subluxation can be relieved and used to open and drain the inner ear. This prevents the build-up of fluid in that area and consequent infection.

Upper Cervical Chiropractic for Inner Ear Infection

Here at Upper Cervical Chiropractic of Georgia, we correct the displacement of the upper two vertebrae in the neck – the upper cervical vertebrae. By correcting the subluxation, we can remove the cause of the problem and allow the body to heal itself without the need for medication.  This is just one of the conditions that upper cervical chiropractic can be used to treat naturally and effectively.
Many people do not understand the effect of an upper cervical sublaxation – a displacement of the upper two vertebrae in the neck. This condition is not particularly rare, yet it can affect many people in different ways. Chiropractic is used to treat many common problems.  Using upper cervical chiropractic for an ear infection is just one of these.
The goal of a chiropractor is not to treat the actual disease. What we aim to do at Upper Cervical Chiropractic of Georgia is to treat the upper neck subluxation. This opens up the Eustachian tube and allows the body to heal itself.
This is the approach used in practically all upper chiropractic work: to readjust the upper cervical vertebrae so that any issues the subluxation is causing can be resolved by removing the pressure on the spinal cord.
