Ear Infections

The underlying cause of ear infections or otitis media is usually a biomechanical problem. There is a reduction of drainage in the lymph vessels found in the lymphatic chains that will cause a build-up of fluid in the inner ear. This may lead to a loss of normal function of the small muscle at the opening of the eustachian tube in the throat that allows bacteria and viruses from the mouth to enter the inner ear. Instead of treatment that tries to kill the bacteria or virus, a more natural approach would be to restore normal drainage of the ears and neck lymphatics.This is most effectively done through chiropractic.
