The number one reason for child and infant visits to the pediatrician is ear infections (otitis media). Chiropractic care can break the cycle of recurrent ear infections and multiple antibiotic treatments. Cervical subluxatons can create spasms of the levator veli palatini and tensor veli palatini muscles. These muscle have attachments to the eustachian tube cartilage. If there is a spasm in these muscles, it may result in the closure of the eustachian tube, blocking the fluid from draining. The fluid can build up in the middle ear and cause pain, with or without infection. Cervical and auricular adjustments, soft tissue manipulation, endonasal massage and dietary recommendations are helpful in stopping recurrent ear infections.
