Abstract/Notes

Objective: To describe the care of an infant with a chief complaint of recurrent ear infections and review the current literature.

Clinical Features: A one-year-old infant with a chief complaint of chronic, recurrent ear infections presented for chiropractic care. The child suffered four bilateral ear infections in a period of six months. Medical care consisted of prescribed antibiotics. The ear infections interfered with the child’s sleep and caused extreme irritation in the child’s attitude. A full spine examination revealed subluxations throughout.

Intervention and Outcome: The patient was cared for with toggle recoil/headpiece and Logan Basic. Care frequency was set at 1-2 times per week for 6 weeks and adjusted accordingly for the presence of spinal subluxation. The patient received a total of 9 adjustments over the 6-week period with resolution and non-recurrence of the child’s OM.

Conclusion: This case report adds to the growing literature on the effectiveness of subluxation-based chiropractic care in children presenting with a history of medically diagnosed OM.
