Ear infections chiropractor
« on: January 31, 2019, 09:01:54 PM »
A while back The Voice of Lakewood had  an article on  chiropractic adjustments for ear infections and I seem to remember that Dr. Shanik although he agreed that it can help but he felt it was too risky. Does anyone else remember something like that?

Does anybody have any experience or knowledge if it works?

It’s biologically implausible.

I think I read that getting a tune up by a mechanic can clear up an ear infection in half the time.

I did absolutely no research on this but maybe better posture helps keep the eustachian tubes open.
If you see something that is 50% off but don't need it, walk away and save yourself 100%

Huh? I know people who took their kids there and it worked.. basically from what I understand the chiropractor gives a few jerks etc. And gets the liquid to drain hence the liquid doesn't infect the ears.. Dr. Gittleman told me a similar response as Dr. Shanik he doesn't feel comfortable with the jerks they do to the head...

Anecdotal evidence is not meaningful.

I mean it’s really a tough call, on the one hand chiropractic neck manipulations can cause strokes (https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4264725/) but on the other hand someone made a claim that’s “too good to be true” that makes no physiologic sense. It’s really a toss-up when you get right down to it.

  • Location: The value of a forum such as this one is not in that one can post a question and receive an answer, but in that the question has most likely been asked before, and the answer is available to him that will but only use the search function.
  • Programs: 1. Search on google. 2. Search in the right board of DDF with a general word or two. 3. Read the wiki. 4. Read the thread. 5. Ask away.

Amazing. Do you have alerts setup for faux medical terms or something?
