Does your child frequently get sick with ear infections? While everyone can be sick from time to time, chronic, recurring ear infections are not a “normal” part of growing up. Unfortunately, most conventional medicine relies on antibiotics to treat ear infections. This means children and babies as young as six or nine months are subjected to multiple rounds of antibiotics. The more infections your child has, the more antibiotics your child will take. As a parent, it’s natural to wonder if safer, more effective treatment options are available. At Back To Health Family Chiropractic, Fort Worth chiropractor Dr. Chris Michlin is here to help.
Dr. Michlin is the only Board Certified Atlas Orthogonal Chiropractor in North Texas. He provides a specialized chiropractic adjustment known as Atlas Orthogonal Adjustments. This adjustment targets the atlas vertebra, the top vertebrae in the cervical spine. A misalignment in the atlas vertebra can impact the entire spine, as well as the head, neck, and hips. Additionally, since the atlas vertebra sits right at the brain stem, misalignments here can also impact the ear, nose, and throat. The purpose of chiropractic care, including atlas orthogonal adjustments, is to restore proper function to the body.
Atlas orthogonal care is gentle, safe and effective. The goal of treatment is the restoration of normal body function for all the body’s systems, including the muscular, glandular, respiratory, digestive and nervous systems.
Evidenced-based research shows that antibiotics are not always effective for treating ear infections. In fact, in some cases, prolonged use of antibiotics may even lead to the increased risk for future infections. If your child’s doctor has told you that antibiotics or surgery for tube insertion is the only solution, it is important to know that you do have other options.
At Back To Health Family Chiropractic, we want all children to live healthy, active lives free from pain and illness. Atlas orthogonal adjustments can help by providing both immediate pain relief as well as supporting the body’s correct functions. By enhancing whole body health and restoring normal function to the body’s systems, Atlas orthogonal adjustments can reduce the risk for future ear infections.
As a parent, it is important to know that you have choices for how your child is treated. Back To Health Family Chiropractic is a family owned and operated clinic. Dr. Michlin, his wife and business partner, Nancy and the rest of the Back To Health Family Chiropractic team want you and your family to feel confident and comfortable with the treatment choices you select. Our Fort Worth chiropractor recommends scheduling a diagnostic appointment to learn more about chiropractic care for ear infections, including what to expect during a treatment appointment.
In addition to reducing the frequency of ear infections, chiropractic care may also help improve your child’s overall quality of life. Parents frequently tell us how chiropractic care has improved their child’s temperament and overall health.
