Chiropractic Treatment. Misalignments in the neck, shoulders or back or in the jaw could be the cause of ear pain. The adjustments performed by a chiropractor help to correct misalignments to reduce swelling in the affected area. The improvement in blood circulation, freedom of movement and relief to the nerves and joints can all play a role in pain relief. In some instances, the pain relief is because the manipulation allows the eustachian tube to drain. The drainage relieves ear infection pain and pressure. Regular appointments with a chiropractor can help to keep the canal drained. It may offer relief to anyone that suffers from chronic ear infections due to fluid in the ear.
