Ear Infections Q & A

What causes ear infections?

Ear infections can result if bacteria or a virus enters the middle ear, the space behind the eardrum. An infection can cause a painful buildup of fluids and inflammation that result in pain and side effects like:

  • Headaches
  • Sleep disruption
  • Balance issues
  • Hearing difficulties

Untreated ear infections can also result in permanent ear damage and hearing loss.

How does chiropractic care treat ear infections?

In some cases, recurrent ear infections may be due to drainage issues caused by misalignment in your spinal vertebrae, known as subluxations.

By adjusting the misalignment, your HealthWise Chiropractic provider can improve drainage efficiency in your middle ear, reducing your risk for persistent ear infections.

While you may need a course of antibiotics to clear an existing infection, chiropractic care can be a useful preventive tool for new infections. Treatment can also help you avoid surgery or other invasive treatments on the drainage system in your ear.

What can I expect during chiropractic treatment for ear infections?

Your HealthWise Chiropractic provider evaluates the health of your spine to create a custom treatment plan to treat and prevent ear infections. During your initial exam, your provider assesses the alignment of your spine and recommends which chiropractic techniques may be most beneficial.

Many treatment plans use a combination of manual adjustments and chiropractic technologies to realign vertebrae. The team offers the latest equipment, like the ProAdjuster, for convenient, in-office treatments.

How does the ProAdjuster work?

During your treatment with ProAdjuster technology, you sit in a special chair. Your HealthWise Chiropractic uses a small, U-shaped instrument to identify misaligned vertebrae before using the ProAdjuster machine to deliver a series of gentle taps for the purpose of moving the bones back into position.

Treatment with the ProAdjuster is painless and requires no sudden movements. The technology is effective at realigning vertebrae to promote better ear drainage to reduce the recurrence of infections.

The ProAdjuster technology is also effective at treating misalignments in the joints, including your jaw and shoulder, to address a limited range of motion or pain due to injury or underlying medical issues.
