When dealing with an ear infection, chiropractors focus on the muscles in the neck in order to encourage proper function of lymph glands within the ear. If there is a misalignment within the area of the spine that is located in the neck, nerve function is disrupted and can hamper the process of proper drainage of the Eustachian tube in the ear. The Chiropractor will use a gentle adjusting technique for a readjustment of the spine to release the pressure that is affecting the infected ear. Once a successful spinal adjustment releases the interference that was disrupting your body’s proper nerve function, the Eustachian tube in your ear will begin to function correctly again, as will your lymphatic vessels, and proper healthy drainage of fluid from your ear will occur.
