Ear Infection Treatment

Are you looking for a natural treatment for ear infections?

If yes, you’ve come to the right place!

 

Ear infection is a matter of concern for many people, especially children.

It is characterized by inflammation or irritation anywhere in your outer, middle, or inner ear. Especially if the infection is in your inner ear, it can dramatically affect your balancing and hearing ability, a condition called labyrinthitis.

Hearing loss and vertigo are the prominent symptoms of labyrinthitis that can severely impact your quality of life. If frequent ear infections are making your life miserable, let us help you.

Upper cervical chiropractic is an effective and clinically proven alternative treatment for ear infections. The procedure involves gently correcting upper spine misalignment to promote healthy brain stem function and prevent the buildup of infection.

In the hands of a trained and licensed chiropractor, you can find lasting natural relief to most of your health concerns.

Learn About Ear Infections

The ear has three sections namely, the inner ear, middle ear, and outer ear. All these sections work together to support the hearing ability and maintain body equilibrium. An ear infection is caused when bacteria or a virus invades the ear and causes swelling and inflammation. Depending on where the infection is located, you may experience different symptoms.

Acute otitis media affecting the middle ear is the most common ear infection. The symptoms are usually mild and resolve within one or two weeks with care. The same goes for outer ear infections as well. However, infections in the innermost part of the ear don’t go away that easily. It can last much longer and if not treated promptly, the infection may even cause permanent damage to the ear.

Labyrinthitis is a type of inner ear infection that occurs when the labyrinth, a part of the ear that supports balancing, gets inflamed. The bony labyrinth houses a membranous labyrinth, which is further divided into semicircular canals and saccule and utricle that support balancing, and the cochlear duct, which plays a crucial role in the hearing process. A bacterial or viral infection can interrupt the flow of information from these parts of the ear to the brain, which can lead to a range of problems.

Some of the most common symptoms of labyrinthitis include:

    • Loss of balance
    • Nausea
    • Partial or permanent hearing loss
    • Vomiting
    • Dizziness or spinning sensation (vertigo)
    • Ear pain
    • Ear discharge
    • Ringing in your ear (tinnitus)

Chronic Inner Ear Infections

Chronic infection of the inner ear can also lead to Meniere’s disease that can cause dizziness (vertigo) and hearing loss. The symptoms, such as dizziness, head spinning or trouble keeping balance, can greatly affect your ability to perform everyday tasks, including working, driving, or operating machinery. Moreover, these can appear anytime, posing a danger to the life of the individual. Thus, it becomes important to seek professional treatment right away if you experience any of the symptoms of ear infection.

Many people believe that medications are the only way to control the symptoms of an ear infection. While prescription drugs, such as antihistamines, corticosteroids and antibiotics may be effective in keeping symptoms under control, they are not sure-shot and may cause certain side effects. Moreover, surgery may be required if your vertigo is a symptom of recurrent infection due to a hole or rupture in the inner ear. Instead of going through any drastic surgical procedure, why not consider an alternative, non-invasive treatment approach!

Can Upper Cervical Chiropractic Care Treat Ear Infections?

Yes, definitely! Upper cervical chiropractic care can greatly help reduce or even eliminate both acute and chronic ear infections. It is a non-invasive and natural alternative to medicines and surgery, which works by enhancing the function of the nervous system.

Your nervous system is the major controlling and communicating system in your body. When any part of your body fails to receive nerve impulses from your brain, it starts to malfunction. Many studies have proven that this impairment of mind-body communication is simply a result of misalignment in your upper cervical spine or the two tiny bones in the upper neck (Atlas and Axis), a condition termed as subluxation.

The subluxation can impact your immune system and your body’s ability to fight infections, including ear infections. An upper cervical chiropractic Doctor optimizes the body function by using gentle spinal adjustments and manipulations to remove all interferences in mind-body communication.

The procedure works like wonders for ear infections. When gentle adjustments are applied to the upper neck region, it helps the surrounding muscles to relax, which enables the inner ear to open and drain naturally. Furthermore, when your body receives 100% impulses from your brain, it starts to heal naturally by developing its own antibodies. Thus, upper cervical adjustments are extremely helpful in reducing the risks of fluid buildup and subsequent infection.

When your body can take care of itself naturally, there is no need to rely on drugs or surgery.
