Ear Infections Treatment in West Bloomfield, MI
Searing, aching pain in the ear, neck, and jaw may occur due to an ear infection. These infections come about when fluid drains into the ear and becomes trapped. Bacteria grow, and the fluid in the ears becomes infected.
Symptoms of an ear infection may include ear pain and fever. Sinus or upper respiratory infection often accompanies an ear infection.
Preventing Ear Infections
Because excess drainage due to sinus or upper respiratory infection is a common cause of ear infections, preventing or treating these conditions can help prevent ear infections. One of the most effective ways of preventing infection is by improving your immune system.
Vitamin C is one of the top immune-boosting nutrients. Citrus fruits, berries, and spinach can all contain it in significant quantities.
Probiotics are another excellent immune-boosting supplement. Yogurt and other cultured milk products are an excellent source of probiotics.
Drinking tea can also help build the immune system. Tea supports the immune system with a chemical called L-theanine, an immune-building amino acid found in black or green tea.
Chiropractic Care for Ear Infections
Chiropractic care is also a great way to improve your immune system. The body is made up of electrical signals that communicate between the nervous system and the brain. When these signals become blocked, the brain cannot properly communicate with the immune, digestive, or nervous systems.
Chiropractic care can gently realign the body to unblock these electrical signals. When the brain and immune system can communicate clearly, the immune system can work properly to prevent infection including ear infections.
However, preventing ear infections isn’t the only care chiropractors provide for ear pain. A chiropractor can manipulate the ears and neck to help drain the fluid in the ear. This action reduces pressure and relieves pain, thus making it an effective ear infections treatment.
