I have been adjusting children for over 15 years now. The quickest and easiest fix has always been in the case of recurrent ear infections. Once you start adjusting one of these children on a regular basis and instruct the parent on some natural food remedies, it is quite easy to erradicate the recurrent ear infections. The truth is that once you start adjusting the child, the immune system is brought to life and most recurrent illness are easily eliminated.

Objective: To review improvement in a child with otitis media, adenoid hypertrophy, nasal congestion, and hearing loss associated with speech difficulties, developmental delay, and behavioral concerns undergoing chiropractic care.
Clinical Features: A 4 year-old male presented with complaints of otitis media with effusion, adenoid hypertrophy, nasal congestion, bilateral hearing loss, speech difficulties, developmental delay, and behavioral concerns. Vertebral subluxations were found at upper cervical and upper thoracic vertebral levels.
Intervention and Outcomes: After 11 chiropractic adjustments including instrument and diversified techniques patient’s re-evaluation with ENT physician revealed resolution of otitis media with effusion, adenoid hypertrophy, nasal congestion, hearing loss and improvement of speech, development, and behavior. Patient had improved intervertebral motion in the upper cervical and upper thoracic spine.
Conclusions: This case report presents supporting evidence that chiropractic adjustments may improve immune system functioning, thus relieving otitis media, adenoid hypertrophy, nasal congestion and their subsequent effects. More research is recommended to support the findings presented in this paper and to examine the role vertebral subluxation has on immune function.

I have been a chiropractor for since 1996 but an athlete since I played baseball with the boys in the early pee wee leagues. I continued with sports throughout my high school career: softball, basketball, skiing and competitive horseback riding. In chiropractic school I was introduced to functional exercise and structural rehabilitation and continue to do this type of exercise to this day with great success.
