Untreated, the following may occur:
It surprises many to learn that some of the nerves that control, regulate and monitor the ear begin in the brain stem, continue down the spinal cord and exit out from between the bones of the spinal column. Changes to the function of the bones in the upper neck may compromise the quality of the nerve signals to and from the brain. Obviously, this can affect the ability of any organ or tissue – in this case, your child’s ear – to “defend itself” from infection.
Nerve compromise is often accompanied by abnormal tension to the muscles that support the spine. Besides protecting the spine from further compromise, these muscle spasms can exert pressure on nearby lymphatic drainage ducts, which can prevent natural drainage, further compounding the problem.
What We Do
ALLCARE HEALTH & REHABILITATION’s approach is simple. Since chiropractic care isn’t a treatment for infections of any type, when parents bring their child in for an examination, we look specifically for distortions in the upper spine. If nerve tension is detected, we gently reduce it with safe and natural chiropractic adjustments. This helps restore nervous system integrity. For a child or infant, this usually requires little more than a light touch with our fingertip at just the right place and in the right direction.
Parents love our approach. We explain everything in advance. Our adjusting approach is safe and results are achieved naturally.
