Health Tip of the Week: Ear Aches

Hi, I’m Dr. Rob with HealthSource of Marshall, today Have Tori as my model. What we are going to be talking about is an ear adjustment. When I was in graduate school and I learned that the ear could be adjusted I was a little bit flabbergasted. But when I was a student there I got a really bad cold and while I Was going to get my regular adjustment to boost my immune system my world changed. The reason you can actually adjust the ear when you have a cold, and also because sometimes you have headaches, is because pressure builds up within your Eustachian Tubes and that pressure then builds up on your ear drums. That pressure continues to build up until you’ve got pain and the release of that pressure provides relief. When I’m checking the patients ear for the first time, I always begin by stretching out on the ear lobe This is something that you can do as well, to release that pressure. You’ve actually got three little bones on the inside, that typically aren’t moving well and when they move, that is the clicking and popping you can hear! This helps with patients who have inner ear aches, constant ear pain, or frequent headaches and colds. What you’re going to do is grab onto the earlobe and stretch it out and give a little pull at the end. That is what we are doing is stretching it out. If you’re doing it at home, you can actually grab onto Both ears and do it at the same time. Thank you very much, again this was Dr. Rob from HealthSource of Marshall
