Treating Ear Infections in Children with NUCCA
Each year, over 10 million children are treated for ear infections in the United States alone. 85% of children will have at least one ear infection by the time they reach the age of three. No matter how comprehensive your family’s health care, or how healthy your family’s lifestyle, it is likely that your child, too, may develop an ear infection.
At worst, the chronic ear infections experienced by so many children can lead to hearing impairment. And even if this hearing loss is temporary, it may still slow speech and learning development. At best, childhood ear infections are painful for children and their parents alike. These infections can, however, be effectively and painlessly treated and prevented.
NUCCA (National Upper Cervical Chiropractic Association) Spinal Correction can help dramatically with both prevention and treatment of childhood ear infections, without invasive ear-tube surgery or antibiotics. (These palliatives merely treat the symptoms of the problem, rather than strengthening your child’s body or ability to fend off infections in the first place.) Rather than putting your child through an immune-depressing round of antibiotics or the suffering and trauma of unnecessary surgery, try bringing your child to Balance Chiropractic Center to check for and gently correct spinal misalignment.
The spinal column is connected to the brain stem and central nervous system, which send messages to all the rest of the body’s systems. These messages, streaming at the rate of thousands per second, tell us how to feel, perceive and function. If the brain stem and spine are misaligned or stressed, that misalignment and stress = and attendant pain – is in turn broadcast to the rest of the body.
So, good spinal balance is critical to good health in every organ and structure of the body. Misalignment or stress in a baby or child’s spine can contribute to ear infections, allergies, sinus problems, asthma, ADD and a host of other health issues.
NUCCA Spinal Correction is a specialized technique whereby gentle, safe and painless manipulation of the vertebrae in your child’s neck realigns the spinal column, removing interference from the brain stem and allowing your child’s body to come into balance and heal itself.
To help treat and prevent ear infections, your the doctors at Balance Chiropractic Center will work with the overall relationship of your child’s head and neck, making sure that the top bone of her neck, or the atlas, is in line with her head and all the vertebrae below. If an ear infection is already in process, or if ear infections are a chronic issue for your child, special attention will also be paid to the specific vertebrae that correspond to your child’s middle and inner ear. The realignment of your child’s head, neck and spine will not only boost her overall health; it will allow for the smooth flow of fluids that can otherwise back up inside the middle ear, causing pressure, pain and infections.
NUCCA may be the alternative you are looking for to prevent and treat ear infections and other health problems without pursuing costly and ineffective standard palliative treatments. The doctors at Balance Chiropractic Center will be happy to talk with you about ways to support and enhance your child’s health, comfort and well-being through this gentle, effective technique.
