Physical therapists not only just treat the symptom but aim to get the root cause of the problem. Misalignments could irritate the nerves and might damage the body’s ability to function completely. The main purpose of physiotherapy is to maintain the normal functioning of the nervous system.
Ear Infections and Physical Therapy
Ear infection is one of the well-known illnesses of children as well as the exasperating matter for parents as well. They are also the most common reason for prescribing antibiotics. Many physiotherapists believe that there is a strong link between the birthing process and recurrent ear infection, also known as otitis media.
Antibiotics that are always prescribed by physiotherapists or pediatricians are not effective enough to cure the ear infections that children usually have. It might even lead to recurrence of ear infection. Many children are suffering from continuing set of ear infection, which leads them back to their pediatrician and for more antibiotics. It has been proved that physical adjustment is best for ear and upper respiratory infections.
Side Effects of Physical Therapy
Although more scientific research needs to be done in this area, physical therapy is drug free, surgery free, painless and won’t hurt your child. There are no invasive procedures and physical therapists do not use drugs that can have harmful side effects.
