My daughter Shelby began seeing Dr. Batterton after suffering from chronic ear infections as a toddler. We had Shelby’s adenoids removed and tubes placed in her ears. We thought this would be the end of her suffering from constant ear infections and congestion. The treatment seemed to work until March 2011 when she began to suffer from chronic ear infections and congestion. This time is was so bad that we had to rush her to the emergency room one weekend night to seek treatment.
After consulting with her pediatrician we sought the help of a pediatric ENT. The doctor suggested we treat her with a heavy dose of antibiotics to clear up the infection and even hinted at putting tubes back in her ears. After the infection had cleared we were told Shelby suffered from extreme allergies and the doctor suggested we do a skin test and sign her up for monthly allergy shots. After thinking about putting my eight yr old through skin testing and monthly shots I turned to Dr. Batterton.
I have been seeing Dr. Batterton for about 3 years for treatment of neck pain and I have always felt very comfortable under her care. I asked her if she thought chiropractic care could help with Shelby’s ear infections and allergies. She asked that we give Shelby weekly adjustments for a month before Shelby’s return visit to the ENT.
The results were fantastic! After her adjustments Shelby’s congestion decreased and her ears stopped hurting. An added bonus was Shelby loved coming to Dr. Batterton. She never hesitated to jump onto the table for her adjustments and would even ask to go the office on days we didn’t have an appointment.
It has now been seven months since she began seeing Dr. Batterton. Her infections have not returned and Shelby is no longer on any allergy medications. I love to brag about Dr. Batterton to all my friends when I hear them mention allergies or ear problems with their children. It works for us and Shelby continues to enjoy her monthly trips to see Dr. B!
