The ear ache associated with swimmer’s ear is most commonly caused by a clogged Eustachian tube (the canals that go from the back of your throat to your middle ear). It can be painful and frustrating and left untreated can lead to even more serious conditions. Swimmer’s ear is most common in children because the Eustachian tubes are narrower and positioned horizontally making it harder to drain than adult ears. When these tubes are blocked, fluid gathers causing pain. This pain will not go away until the cause has been removed.
The uppermost bone of the cervical spine lies immediately beneath the Eustachian tubes. By adjusting this bone misalignments are fixed and any neck, ear or head pain should be reduced or eliminated.
