Tinnitus & Upper Cervical Chiropractic
Upper cervical care focuses on the alignments of the top bones of the cervical spine and making specific adjustments to remove the pressure placed on the nervous system as a result of misalignment. Misalignments in the upper cervical spine interfere with the brain's ability to communicate with the body and vice versa and as a result, can present as symptoms such as tinnitus and other auditory disturbances.
Once a correction has been made, the brain and body communication is restored and the body begins to heal and repair. Depending on the severity and reasoning behind the cause of the tinnitus, some clients/patients have reported improvements in their condition in as little as one adjustment, however, this will vary between individuals.
If you or someone you know has tinnitus and hasn't had their upper cervical spine analysed and checked, please feel free to BOOK IN A CALL and we will give you more information to help you find a solution.
