Chronic colds/cough/ear infections


Help your child get healthy and stay healthy.


“Tucker was almost 2 years old and had been suffering from a number of ear infections & repeated illnesses. He was never really fully healthy. Every 3-4 weeks he would get sick.He seemed fine during the day, but at night he had a very tough time sleeping. There was a lot of coughing, gagging, post-nasal drip and mucus. He was also spitting up a lot. As an infant there was a lot of projectile vomiting and projectile spit up.

I was very concerned and very frustrated that he was sick. As the mother and primary care-giver to the family, I felt like it was my responsibility to figure it out. The biggest frustration was when Tucker wasn’t sleeping, I wasn’t sleeping. That was tremendously difficult. It had been 18 months of that. If I don’t get enough sleep it’s not good for anybody.

Initially we went down the conventional path. Everyone was telling me to do tubes in his ears. From the doctors to the strangers on the street. He would get this post-nasal drainage and I would take him in and he would not have an ear infection. Then he’d have a difficult time sleeping for the next three nights, and it would get progressively worse. I would take him in again after three days, and then he’d have an ear infection. So everyone would tell me he needs tubes in his ears.

However, I thought that there was always something leading up to the ear infection, something causing it. We needed to pinpoint that. We needed to resolve the drainage and the mucus because that’s what was leading to the ear infections. No one was really listening. We eventually did put tubes in his ears, but even after that he got another ear infection.

As soon as we started coming to Whole Family Chiropractic, Tucker hasn’t had a single ear infection since! This has been great because of all the rounds of antibiotics and even tubes in his ears, it is now helping.

He still gets drainage when he gets sick, but it’s not like it was before. We’re still not all the way there, but we’re doing a lot to help him, and he’s obviously healthier. Now I have a lot more comfort and reassurance that we’re doing the right thing.

I would recommend someone come to WFC, because I don’t want them to repeat my same mistakes. Because if I knew then what I do now, I would have done things so differently. I feel like we’d have skipped a lot of rounds of antibiotics. Probably six to eight, which in a small infant is a lot.

I feel like WFC is extremely involved in all of our health as a family as a whole. From Tucker’s tubes, to Mac’s teeth, to Jon’s back, to my own stress. Whether it’s questions when we’re here getting adjustments or through email. We started coming here because of Tucker’s ear infections, and now it’s the whole family!”
