A study was performed on 46 children under the age of 5 to determine if ear infections improved while under chiropractic care. All treatments were done by a single chiropractor, who adjusted the misalignments found paying particular attention to the cervical vertebrae.
“Improvement was based on parental decision (they stated that the child had no fever, no signs of ear pain, and was totally asymptomatic), and/or the child seemed to be asymptomatic to the treating DC and/or the parent stated that the child’s MD judged the child to be improved.”
The results were that 93% of all episodes improved, 75% in 10 days or fewer and 43% with only one or two treatments. In this published study found on Pub Med, https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/8728460, the data indicates that limitation of medical intervention and the addition of chiropractic care may decrease the symptoms of ear infection in young children.
