Tinnitus And Dizziness

“Ringing in the ear" is often viewed as a peculiar medical condition. It is, however, usually a symptom of an underlying dysfunction. In chiropractic, we know it as a symptom of a subluxation in the upper cervical spine. A German study 1 describes instability of the upper cervical spine as a cause for ear noise. This same study recommends operative bracing of the unstable segments. We initially recommend a more conservative treatment.


This is an example of the negative effects of subluxation on the systems of our bodies. An adjustment in this sensitive area alleviates nerve dysfunctions and lets the body operate closer to optimal functioning. Ear noise, dizziness, deafness and balance disruptions can disappear.
