What is tinnitus?
Patients afflicted with tinnitus hear ringing, buzzing, hissing, or roaring sounds in their ears that do not come from an external stimulus.
The causes of tinnitus
High blood pressure, anemia, and cardiovascular issues are just a few of the health conditions that can contribute to tinnitus. Other possible causes are thyroid abnormalities, Meineire’s disease, and ear blockages that could be a side effect of medication for another medical condition.
How Atlas Realignment can help tinnitus
A misaligned Atlas vertebrae and cervical spine can cause the muscles surrounding the Eustacian tube (the canal that connects the middle ear to the nasopharynx) to tense and inhibit proper drainage of the ear canal. If the ear canal can’t drain, it can cause infections, a buildup of fluid, blockages, and the general deterioration of the inner ear. Treating tinnitus in Stamford, CT, with an Atlas Realignment procedure will help the muscles around the Eustacian tube to relax and the ear to drain naturally.
