The condition itself is not serious or even life-threatening though it can be a nuisance to those who suffer with it. In more serious cases, it can have a direct impact on a person’s life and can even aggravate or contribute to other conditions such as depression and insomnia. If you’re suffering from the effects of tinnitus, our experts are here to help.
While the cause of tinnitus is not fully understood, it is largely attributed to the interaction between the brain and the ear – specifically in how the brain interprets the sounds picked up by the ear. The cochlea, located inside the inner ear, is responsible for relaying auditory signals to the brain. When part of the cochlea is damaged, internal noise can occur as a result of the other areas of the cochlea attempting to compensate.
As well as loud noise, other common causes include Otosclerosis, Ménière’s disease, a perforated eardrum, infection, accumulation of earwax and a misalignment of the spine. Some cases of tinnitus can also be brought about as a result of the following:
- Acoustic neuroma
- Paget’s disease
- Certain medications
If you’re tired of living with the effects of tinnitus and would like an honest opinion, give us a call. We’ll provide you with a complete assessment as well as ask you carefully chosen questions regarding your work and lifestyle. We will also carry out a complete examination of your spine to check for any possible misalignment as tinnitus can be a symptom of this.
In the event that we discover that the tinnitus is linked to your spinal health, we will discuss our findings with you and suggest an appropriate method of treatment. Here at NuLife Hospital, we treat the underlying cause of tinnitus (ringing in the ears) as well as the symptoms. We use a variety of methods to tackle subluxation or misalignment of the back or spine which include spinal manipulation and spinal mobilisation.
Through careful positioning and manual impulses, our consultants can help restore the alignment of your spine and release any built up pressure. This will achieve the result of relieving any pain or discomfort as well as addressing the cause of your tinnitus.
