The Effect of Osteopatic Cranial Techniques on the Audiometric and Tympanometric Values in Children Suffering From Otitis Media With Effusion.

Children with otitis media with effusion will be treated with osteopatic cranial techniques or with a placebo treatment. Before and after the treatment audiometric and tympanometric measures will take place. This procedure will be repeated 3 times, once a week and every session will last for 30-45 minutes. The fourth week, only audiometry and tympanomtry will be done.
