Bea's Cancelled Tube SurgerySep 13, 2023
Cancelled Tube Surgery
Often times, when nasal congestion builds up, babies and young kids get ear infections. This is because when fluid cannot drain properly, it can build up behind the ears (Eustachian Tubes) and cause swelling. Swollen eustachian tubes can become blocked, causing fluids to build up in the middle ear. This fluid can become infected and cause the symptoms of an ear infection.
When Bea first came to the office she had been suffering with chronic ear infections, and her parents had a surgical consultation for ear tubes scheduled for her. Bea is happy to share that since starting conservative chiropractic care, she has had almost no ear infections, and her surgical consultation was cancelled! And two years later, she is still going strong healthy healthy ears and regular adjustments!
This is a common success story with gentle pediatric care. Adjustments can help little tubes and the rest of the body's internal piping system to have better alignment, which allows for excess to flow and drain better. When congestion can be eliminated naturally through proper drainage, infections are les likely to happen! Way to go, Bea!
