Dr. Urvi talks about effective treatments of ear infections.


Hey everyone, it’s Dr.
Urvi with Carmel Wellness. Want you to check out our
post on ear infections. You’re probably wondering,
what are chiropractors doing about ear infections,
especially with kids? And I just wanna tell you a little bit about how chiropractic
care can be an important holistic component to help prevent or care for children with ear infections or even adults, for that matter. So, a couple things that’s going on with ear infections, you have to know what’s going on with the ear. There’s the outer ear,
middle ear, and inner ear. And sometimes with
infections, fluid can build up if there’s colds, sinus
infections, allergies, things like that, congestion can build up from the nose and affect something that’s called the eustachian tube. And when you’re little, the
angle of the eustachian tube doesn’t allow those
fluids to drain properly. So, as chiropractors, we’re able to look at the alignment of the spine, see how that relates to pressure on that eustachian tube,
and if there’s inflammation, with just a very gentle pressure, just the amount you would apply on a grape, per se, we can
help relieve that pressure. We can even, for little
babies and children, use instruments to help
improve that alignment and take pressure off of
that to improve drainage. So, in combination with
care with your pediatrician, a lot of times, they’ll
check out the kiddos and look in the inner ear. It will look red. And they’ll wanna do a
wait and watch approach. So, while you’re waiting and watching, there are natural
approaches that you can take by taking a look at a chiropractor and see what he can do
to help give your kiddo some comfort and prevent possibly taking any medications, NSAIDs, Ibuprofen, Advil. If those things are helpful, that’s fine, but sometimes they come with side effects. So if you’re looking for
a more natural approach, that’s how chiropractic can help. A couple other tips too, if you’re dealing with this issue, is using a warm washcloth to help with the lymphatic drainage, and just apply that behind the ear. That will help significantly. Some essential oils to
help immune system health also helps quite a bit, in addition to additional probiotics. So, if you have any more questions, check out our post above, check out the research
that we’ve attached, and also, reach out to us. We’re here for you as a resource to answer any questions and
help in any way possible. Make it a great day, and
we’ll see you next time!
