Otitis Media or Ear Infection is a primary concern for the parents of many children. There are many causes of red ears, other than a bacterial infection.
These include allergies, teething, fever, and viral infection, among other causes. In all of these cases, antibiotics are not indicated. In fact, the Government recommends that antibiotics not be the first line of treatment because of drug resistant diseases and higher rates of recurrence.
Chiropractic adjustments help improve immune system function and relax the neck muscles. This allows fluid in the ear to drain properly and often provides a permanent solution!
Please call our Portland, TN clinic to set up a consultation with the doctor to discuss your child's health!
