I have recently been treating a lot of patient’s with ear problems. These problems range from muffled ears, full ears, ringing in ears, vertigo, and pain in the ear.
This time of year is common for ear troubles. This is due to a variety of factors such as allergies, change in pressure systems (weather) and food sensitivities (ie. dairy intolerance).
I have had great success in treating patients with ear troubles for many years now, and I use a variety of techniques depending on the problem of the ear or neck.
Different treatments include a soft tissue technique of draining the eustation tube to help it clear the ear. Quite often the eustation tube (tube that drains the ear and sinuses) is blocked with ear wax or it can also be pinched in tight muscles of the neck.
Chiropractic adjustments may also be done to realign the bones in the neck which muscles are attached to and can pinch the eustation tube. Also direct adjustments of the ear helps to realign the eustation tube to allow proper draining.
Home treatments are also recommended to help ear draining which include moist heat applied to the ear and neck for 10 minutes per ear two times a day. The moist hear can be a wet towel or rice bag that has been micro waved for warming.
If you have been or know someone who is experiencing ear problems, please call our office. We would love to meet you!
I look forward to taking great care of you!
