More and more parents are beginning to look to chiropractors to complement their children’s health care. At Active Care Chiropractic in Wilmington, NC, Dr. McGraw believes in addressing the root cause of a health problem rather than just treating the symptoms.
Ear infections account for over 35% of all pediatrician visits in the United States. Antibiotics are not always effective and may even lead to a recurrence of ear infections. A study published in the Journal of Clinical Chiropractic Pediatrics indicates that there is a strong correlation between chiropractic adjustments and the resolution of ear infections. Research has shown that close to 80% of children treated with a series of chiropractic adjustments did not experience another ear infection within the six-month period following their initial visits.
