Vertebral Subluxation and Otitis Media: A Case Study

Author's abstract:   This is the case of a 23-month-old female with chronic otitis media who had orthodox medical treatment with no relief of symptoms. She had sustained improvement with chiropractic care. A mechanism for the etiology of chronic otitis media is suggested. From the paper: "Conventional medical treatment had been administered, including numerous regimens of broad-spectrum antibiotics. Six months before having been seen, bilateral myringotomies with tympanostomy tube placement were performed. The tubes were still in place on presentation." Three days after initial adjustment (at C-1) the patient's ear drainage and pain were notice-ably reduced. Child was soon free of all symptoms.
