Ear Infections is a Primary Concern for many children.
Disgruntled parents often report that Pediatricians are too quick to prescribe antibiotics and / or to perform surgery.There are many cases of ear infections, including allergies, teething, fever and viral infection. In the majority of these cases, antibiotics are not indicated. In fact the government recommends that antibiotics not be the first line of treatment because of drug resistant diseases and higher rate of recurrence. A study in Europe (med. News for Consumers) on tubes in the ear concluded about the results, "No benefit from the placement
actually created some complications such as scarring and permanent perforation..."
During the birth process the head pushing through the birth canal, and pulling and twisting the baby's head can cause serious spinal trauma that can create spinal subluxation (misalignment) of the vertebrae causing nervous system interference, which leads to decreased immune function, lymphatic drainage and other so called "childhood problems" like bedwetting to colic.
A study by Gutman in 1987 (Manual Med.) showed that in 1250 babies examined five days after birth, 95% showed spinal abnormalities.
The authors stated that an unhealthy spine "causes many clinical features from central motor impairment to lower resistance to infections - especially ear, nose and throat infections." The authors, who were M.D.'s, assert that all children should have their spines checked by chiropractors.
Chiropractors do not check and adjust a child the same as adults. This common misconception often makes people hesitant to see a chiropractor. The fact is that chiropractors have many different ways to adjust the spine. These methods are gentle, safe and are well. They are often the amount of pressure you could tolerate if you put your finger on your eyeball.
