Jonny is 5 years old and has suffered with tonsillitis since he was 3. During the first year he suffered with 3 bouts of tonsillitis. Last year he suffered from five episodes of this uncomfortable ailment. And this year he would experience it every month. On every occasion his mother would take him to the GP who would prescribe him with antibiotics every time. At first the antibiotics seemed to help him but over the past 12 months they didn’t seem to make much of a difference.
Instead, Jonny was suffering from tonsillitis more frequently and the pain would become very intense. On his last visit to the GP, he had advised Jonny’s mother that surgery would be the only solution. His mother became quite distressed as she was tired of giving him antibiotics, and she didn’t want to go down the path of surgery. A friend of Jonny’s mother had recommended that she take Jonny to her Chiropractor who had helped her daughter with the same condition.
Within only 4 visits Jonny noticed a difference with his tonsillitis. He was only suffering from it every 3 months and was able to overcome it within a day or 2 – without antibiotics. After a few more adjustments, Jonny has yet to experience another episode of this distressing ailment. It has been 2 years since Jonny’s first Chiropractic adjustment, and he has not had any pain or inflammation.
Although Jonny is not a real person, there are many children out there just like him. Children who experience painful tonsils every month and don’t seem to get relief from antibiotics anymore. Children who miss out on a significant amount of schooling because of their sore throat. And parents who appear quite concerned as they do not know how to help their child.
Thanks to regular Chiropractic adjustments, your child may no longer need to go through the pain and suffering associated with tonsillitis. Chiropractic care offers a natural and effective solution to this uncomfortable ailment. It focuses on eliminating the cause of the inflammation as opposed to masking the symptoms only.
Now I know what you are thinking. “What does my child’s tonsils have to do with their spine?”
The tonsils are connected to the spinal cord via spinal nerves in your child’s neck. In order for the tonsils to function as best as they possibly can, they must receive information from the brain and spinal cord without interference. Misalignments in the spine (subluxations) can cause pressure on the spinal nerves which go to the tonsils and can contribute to tonsillitis. Chiropractors are the only health professionals trained to identify and remove these subluxations. By doing so, your child’s tonsils are better able to perform their function – prevent bacteria from entering into the chest.
Looking at how the spine is connected to the tonsils you can now appreciate that taking your child to see a Chiropractor just makes sense! Why mask the pain (with antibiotic treatment) when the cause of the problem (subluxations) can be corrected.
Parents can sometime become a little apprehensive about taking their child to see a Chiropractor because they think that the adjustments hurt, or that they will get their “bones cracked”. I would like to put your mind at ease here and inform you that Chiropractic care for children is very safe and effective, not to mention, non-invasive. Chiropractors do not “crack bones”. Instead, they perform spinal adjustments, which are very gentle and sometimes quite ticklish.
Chiropractors have helped thousands of children overcome painful tonsillitis. Many of these children were able to get off their medication and even avoid surgery.
If you tired of seeing your child suffer from painful tonsils and would like to avoid giving them antibiotics or having their tonsils removed, try Chiropractic care. It is a natural and non-invasive solution to their tonsillitis. And best of all… IT WORKS!
