Chi­ro­prac­tic Adjust­ments for Chil­dren with Acute Oti­tis Media

A recent study pub­lished in the March 29, 2004 peer reviewed jour­nal, The Jour­nal of Ver­te­bral Sub­lux­a­tion Research, (JVSR), showed that chi­ro­prac­tic adjust­ments had a pos­i­tive effect on chil­dren with acute ear infec­tions. In the study 21 chil­dren were exam­ined. All these chil­dren showed acute inflam­ma­tion in the inner ear with a red and bulging tym­panic mem­brane accom­pa­nied by an increased mean oral tem­per­a­ture of over 100 degrees F.

The results of the study showed that after the chi­ro­prac­tic adjust­ments, the red and bulging tym­panic mem­brane returned to nor­mal in 95% of the chil­dren and a decrease in aver­age oral tem­per­a­ture to 98.6 degrees F.

A sim­i­lar story also appeared on the web­site of the tele­vi­sion sta­tion, WIS TV news on March 30, 2004. That story fea­tured a four year old girl Tay­lor, who went to see a chi­ro­prac­tor for ear infec­tions. Accord­ing to her mother Tay­lor had been suf­fer­ing with about eight ear infec­tions a year. Her mother noted that after two chi­ro­prac­tic adjust­ments, she hasn’t had one ear infec­tion in nine months, “This has been a big great help for us.”

The news report ended with the fol­low­ing, “Besides ear infec­tions another study found chi­ro­prac­tic care helps babies with colic. The study reports chil­dren cried two hours less after hav­ing adjust­ments than those who received the stan­dard drug treatment.”
