Tinnitus is the medical term for a ringing in your ears, which various factors can cause. This symptom can be bothersome or even debilitating and stem from exposure to loud noise, medications, ear wax build-up, or age-related hearing loss. But did you know that misalignment in the upper cervical spine can also bring tinnitus episodes?
When your topmost bones (atlas and axis) shift out of alignment, it can trigger different health conditions involving your inner ear and central nervous system. Some of these conditions have tinnitus as common symptoms, such as Meniere’s Disease and TMJ disorder. In addition, trauma or injury in the head can also trigger symptoms of tinnitus.
Addressing these misalignments with the help of an Upper Cervical chiropractor for tinnitus can help relieve these symptoms. Also, a misaligned atlas can inhibit the proper drainage of excess fluid from the ear. This blockage can lead to a fluid build-up and eventually bring ringing in the ears.
Realigning your topmost bones and bringing them back into their proper place through gentle, manual adjustments is necessary to support the proper drainage of your excess inner ear fluid and alleviate the symptoms caused by health conditions linked to upper cervical misalignments.
Upper Cervical chiropractors can precisely correct misalignments in this area of the neck, which can help symptoms like tinnitus dissipate over time. In addition to relieving tinnitus, regular Upper Cervical chiropractic adjustments can help improve overall health by promoting better posture and balance and reducing chronic pain due to misalignment.
