Abstract/Notes Purpose: To report and discuss four cases of ear pain which were treated successfully with manual therapy.

Methods: Report of four cases.

Results: Four patients with ear pain were referred for chiropractic consult. They were all treated with a combination of manual therapy and exercise with resolution of their ear symptoms.

Conclusions: The mechanism of idiopathic ear pain that may be amenable to manual therapy is not fully known. Further research is needed to investigate the etiology of this disorder and to determine whether manual therapy and exercise are viable options in some patients with idiopathic ear pain. In the meantime, it may be advantageous for otolaryngologists to seek input from physicians skilled in assessment and treatment of the musculoskeletal system in cases ear pain for which an otolarygologic etiology cannot be found.

Objectif: Signaler et discuter de quatre cas d’otalgie qui ont été traités avec succès grâce à la thérapie manuelle.

Méthodes : Signalement de quatre cas.

Résultats: On a conseillé à quatre patients souffrant d’otalgie de consulter un chiropraticien. Ils ont tous été traités avec un ensemble de thérapies manuelles et d’exercices ayant conduit à la disparition des symptômes d’otalgie.

Conclusions: Le mécanisme d’otalgie idiopathique qui peut être traité par la thérapie manuelle n’est pas entièrement connu. Des recherches supplémentaires sont nécessaires afi n d’étudier l’étiologie de ce trouble et de déterminer si la thérapie manuelle et l’exercice sont des options viables chez des patients souffrant d’otalgies idiopathiques. Il peut également être bénéfique pour les oto-rhino-laryngologistes de consulter des médecins compétents en matière d’évaluation et de traitement des systèmes musculosquelettique dans les cas où aucune étiologie oto-rhino-laryngologique ne peut être trouvée pour l’otalgie.
