Kids are prone to develop ear infections, which are commonly treated the same way: with antibiotics, or with eardrops. For many children, this isn’t a problem, but for some kids who are sensitive to antibiotics, this can lead to even more health complications. The good news is that our family chiropractor may be able to help treat ear infections in a more natural way.


Ear infections are extremely common for children, between 50 percent and 85 percent have had them by age 3. There are numerous problems with conventional treatments for ear infections such as allergic reactions, GI upset, antibiotic resistance and even yeast infections caused by destruction of the gut’s intestinal flora. Tubes in the ears are mostly antibiotic/medical failures with infections returning within two months and the tubes can cause hearing loss years later.


The nerves in the upper neck control the drainage of fluids from the ear and supply healing and proper function within the ear. A family chiropractor could help even the most inflamed ears improve within just a few days without tubes, antibiotics or earplugs.

As always, your child’s pediatrician should be consulted when health issues and illnesses arise. Talk to them about whether a family chiropractor could work for your child, and make an appointment with ReVive Health Centre in South Naperville today.
