Did you know that about 10 percent of the US population has experienced tinnitus? Tinnitus is a ringing or buzzing in the ears. It can be caused by many things such as ear wax, medication side effects, hearing loss, infections, cardiovascular disease, Meniere’s disease, tumors, hormonal changes, and thyroid dysfunctions. It can even be caused by dysfunction in the cervical spine, which Back and Body is able to help with.
In 2015, a study was done on 87 chronic tinnitus patients. The study found that about half tested positive for cervicogenic tinnitus. The study concluded that those individuals with chronic tinnitus could benefit from getting chiropractic treatment.
In 2020, a case was studied of a 67 year old female patient with a five year history of chronic tinnitus, headaches, and neck pain. She was given some treatments which focused on postural correction and the direction that helped her feel relieved. She had significant improvements of her symptoms and even showed relief six months later.
As you can see, there are short and long term benefits from this type of self xercise when it comes to tinnitus. Patients can even perform these at home and still experience significant improvements.
Here at Back and Body, we center around pain management, postural improvement, and prevention. Manual therapies and spinal manipulation have great short term benefits, and exercise has just as great long term benefits.
