While chiropractic care is very effective for back pain, neck pain, headaches, and sports injuries, it is so much more than that!
Yours in Health,
Dr. Laura Lardi, B.Sc., D.C.
My son Nicholas suffered from chronic ear infections for six consecutive months. They began when he started daycare at age 1. Every month his family doctor prescribed him Amoxicillin. He also saw an ENT who recommended Nicholas get tubes put into his ears. He ordered a hearing test and the results showed that his hearing was low due to fluid from the ear infections that was trapped in his ears. We were placed on a waiting list for surgery.
In May 2011, Nicholas was 18 months old and I had no idea how to help him other than surgery. No mother wants to see their child undergo surgery unless it’s absolutely necessary. A co-worker recommended chiropractic care as an alternative as she knew a chiropractor that treated children. My husband and I were hesitant initially as we did not know much about chiropractic care.
I decided to take Nicholas to see Dr. Lardi for a consultation. Upon examination, she knew she could help him. She informed me on what the treatment process would be. He would receive gentle chiropractic adjustments three times a week initially and then gradually decrease. She also showed me some simple things that I could do at home that would help in the healing process. It was very easy. Dr. Lardi also offered nutritional advice and recommended some specific changes be made to his diet. This was definitely an adjustment but very simple to do. Nicholas was also placed on a probiotic to boost his immune system which was weakened by his constant antibiotic use.
After discussing our options with my husband, we decided to pursue chiropractic care as an alternative to surgery as it was safe and less invasive than surgery.
Nicholas’ results were immediately successful. He has had no ear infections since May 2011 when we began our first treatment. I took him back to see his ENT and he said Nicholas’ ears had no fluid. We cancelled his surgery. We are very grateful and would strongly recommend chiropractic care to any parent whose child is suffering from acute or chronic ear infections.
