The first time my son had an ear infection, it broke my heart to see him in so much pain. I used to have the same thing when I was younger, and I remember how awfully painful they could be. His pediatrician gave me the proper prescriptions for it to be treated at home, and it worked for a while. We did the same thing when he got his second one, and then again on his third one. His doctor told me that we should take him to a Carmichael chiropractor who specializes in care like this.
I had no idea that a chiropractor could help a toddler with an ear infection, or anyone of any age for that matter. I thought for sure our next step would be to an ear nose and throat specialist. I went home and read up on chiropractic care for children and also in treating recurrent ear infections, and I was very surprised with everything that I read. I had no idea that chiropractic care extended that far, and I also had no idea that young children could be seen and treated by one for a number of different conditions.
I really appreciated everything that I read, so I made the appointment. I was worried about my son being afraid, but the doctor and his assistant put my son at ease right away. They were not even aware that they were examining him because of how fun they made the entire ordeal. He had a treatment that day, and we repeated this trip several times. Not only has my son not had any more ear infections, but he seems to have more energy overall now too. He is napping better, and he just seems to be much healthier now. I am a huge advocate for children getting chiropractic care now.
