Below you will learn about a study that is 20 years old, yet the information is still not known and applies even more so today than ever before. In an age when our kids are taking more medications than any other time in the history of humans, finding solutions for our kids that don't involve drugs should be at the top of the to do list. Enjoy this study regarding Ear Infections, one of the most common childhood illnesses.
RE: Journal of Clinical Chiropractic Pediatrics, 1997, Oct 2(2), p167.
332 Children with chronic ear infections participated in a study to demonstrate the correlation between chiropractic adjustments and the resolution of ear infections.
Each child, ranging in age from 27 days to 5 years, was given a series of chiropractic adjustments. The results showed that close to 80% of the children in this study experienced no ear infections within the six-month period following their initial visits.
This is huge because it demonstrates a highly effective course of treatment for one of the most common childhood illnesses. Antibiotics have, time and again, proven to be ineffective at treating chronic ear infections.
If you find yourself having to choose antibiotics more than once for a childhood illness it is time to start rethinking what you are doing for your children's health. Kids are designed to get sick. Getting sick helps their immune system develop and get stronger as they age - similar to working out a muscle, but if it is getting to the point that you need antibiotics then there are more pro-active steps that should be taken. This will allow the kid to heal on their own, setting them up to be healthier and stronger when they are older.
Chiropractic is a great solution for these kids!
Chiropractic is Safe. Chiropractic is Effective.
