Ear Infection and Throat Infection
This is the case study reported in the publication ‘Neurological Fitness’ of a patient who was suffering from a sore throat and difficulty swallowing. She complained of poor appetite, nausea, vomiting and alternating diarrhoea and constipation.
She was also suffering from ear pain and ear discharge related to chronic otitis media which had been present for seventeen months. This condition had resisted several courses of antibiotics as well as surgery to insert tympanostomy tubes (grommets).
Following an examination by a chiropractor, the patient commenced chiropractic care.
Three days after the first adjustment, the ear pain and discharge were substantially reduced. Continued adjustments resulted in both ears being clear of exudate (fluid).
“At the time of this report, the patient had been symptom free for approximately four years”.

This case report supports the view that chiropractic may make a dramatic difference to patients suffering from ear and throat infections.
