Millions of chiropractic patients have praised chiropractic's success with ear infections
More and more parents are bringing their children with ear infections to chiropractors. Studies such as this one show they are doing the right thing: 21 children (9 months to 9 years of age) with acute otitis media, red and bulging eardrums and a temperature of 100º F had a short course of chiropractic care.
The children were re-examined and 95% of the eardrums had returned to normal along with a decrease in average temperature to 98.6ºF. Before receiving the adjustments, the severity of the symptoms in the children was rated at an average of 7.524 on a 0-10 point scale. After receiving the adjustments, the severity of the symptoms had subsided to a mere 0.470 on the same 0-10 point scale.

In practice I have seen so many kids with chronic and acute ear infections clear up after a chiropractic adjustment. In one case, the baby was so severe that his doctor told the parent that his ear drum was about to burst. She brought him immediately to me, I adjusted him, he fell asleep (after screaming for two days), woke up 2 hours later, and totally fine. The mom, needless to say, was amazed.
