Chi­ro­prac­tic Help­ing Kids Fight Ear Infec­tions

A news story on Feb­ru­ary 13, 2007 appeared on CBS-​11 News out of Dal­las — Fort Worth as well as on their web­site, that chron­i­cled chi­ro­prac­tic help­ing chil­dren with ear infec­tions. This story reported on a mother, Susan Lek­borg who says her son Cooper had suf­fered from chronic ear infec­tions for years. Dur­ing this time med­ical treat­ments did lit­tle to ease her son’s suffering.

In this report Ms. Lek­borg recounted the long, sleep­less nights and stated, “We were up all night, he was mis­er­able, cranky. He was on antibi­otics all win­ter and it just wasn’t help­ing. It would go away and come back, go away and come back.” After feel­ing frus­trated and help­less she reluc­tantly decided to go to a chi­ro­prac­tor. “I’ll be hon­est, I was a lit­tle skep­ti­cal, ner­vous about a chi­ro­prac­tor adjust­ing my baby.”

The story reports that the chi­ro­prac­tor she took her son Cooper to was Dr. Peter Mar­tone. Dr. Mar­tone explained the ratio­nale for care by say­ing, “Chi­ro­prac­tic care is sim­ply the art and sci­ence of align­ing the spine to take pres­sure off the nerve and ulti­mately allow the body to heal itself.” He con­tin­ued, “So what hap­pens with the adjust­ment, it allows for those ear canals to open up and the ears will drain, pre­vent­ing any ear infection.”

The news arti­cle noted that after only one visit Cooper started feel­ing bet­ter. The news story also inter­viewed Pedi­a­tri­cian Linda Nel­son who said there’s a lot about the body doc­tors just don’t under­stand. “I’m very open to any­thing that’s benign,” she said. “And it’s cer­tainly isn’t going to hurt the child.”

The arti­cle con­cluded with Susan Lek­borg stat­ing that it worked for her chil­dren. “This will be their third win­ter, no antibi­otics, no Tylenol, no Motrin. They’re clean. I just feel like they’re healthier.”
