Abstract.

Otitis media is a common disorder that results in numerous visits to the physician each year. Antimicrobials, antihistamines, steroids, and surgery have all been used to treat otitis media; however, the literature makes little mention of osteopathic manipulative treatment in this regard. This article describes a technique that was first described in 1929 by William Otis Galbreath, DO. By simple mandibular manipulation, the eustachian tube is made to open and close in a "pumping action" that allows the ear to drain accumulated fluid more effectively. Physicians can easily teach this procedure to parents for use at home.
