Patients old and young alike ask me about the possibility of holistic chiropractic care in helping issues of ear infections, sinusitis, allergies, congested ears and sinuses, and similar issues. Parents of young children also ask me about the possibility of chiropractic care alleviating their children's often chronic ear infections.
The answer is absolutely.
Chiropractic manipulation, particularly to the neck, as well as cranial (skull) bone manipulation, amongst other work, helps the ears and sinuses to drain by relieving mechanical pressure on these structures.
Adjustments also help to remove obstruction of the lymphatic drainage channels (waste drainage) channels running through the head and neck, allowing them to properly dump into the lymph system to be drained from the body.
In addition, chiropractic manipulation stimulates nerves traveling to the sinuses and ears, which helps promote healing and clearing through direct brain and nervous system instruction.
I have known patients to literally have their ear infections resolve within 24-48 hours of their appointment. Many people also tell me that they can actually feel their ears and sinuses draining while we work on them in the treatment room. The results can be instantaneous!
Holistic chiropractic treatment can be an excellent choice for conservative management of ear infections, sinus infections, allergies, and more.
 

Wonderful news flash: I recently received notice of and my certificate of Proficiency in the Webster Technique through the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association! I am officially a Webster certified chiropractor. 

Chiropractic care during pregnancy is essential to the normal physiology of both mother AND baby. The Webster technique is a specific chiropractic analysis and adjustment which aims to reduce pelvic imbalances and improve neurological and musculoskeletal function in both mother and baby.

Pelvic imbalances can lead to discomfort and hinder labor which can also lead to unnecessary intervention during birth.

Research has revealed that this particular type of adjustment may contribute to safer, easier births and alleviate the many symptoms of difficult pregnancy/labor.

Dr. Larry Webster, founder of the Webster technique, also noticed that in most cases when a woman had a breech presentation, babies would often turn to the more desirable head down position after undergoing this type of treatment. 

I am very much looking forward to providing prenatal and pediatric chiropractic care to more people! Please help me to spread the good word.

Thanks to my patient Claudia for undergoing regular prenatal chiropractic care in her very first pregnancy. We can't wait to meet her baby boy Brayden!
