Tinnitus is a condition which is defined by perceived ringing in the ears when there is no actual external noise present. It can manifest itself with sounds other than ringing, such as buzzing, hissing, whistling, swooshing, and clicking.
This condition is considered as one of the most common health problems in the US, affecting the lives of an estimated millions of Americans often to a debilitating degree. Nearly 15% of the general population is said by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control to experience some form of tinnitus.
Fortunately, there is research that suggests that chiropractic can help yet again with a neurological condition for which few answers are given by conventional medicine. Since chiropractic care seeks to address the cause of the neurological issue, it is no surprise that results can and often do follow a specific chiropractic adjustment.
A study in the journal Chiropractic Technique showed that correction of upper neck subluxations
resulted in the complete elimination of tinnitus symptoms in 9 out of 9 cases. For the individual who suffers with Tinnitus either chronic or acute, this could be a life-changing result.
If you or someone you love suffers with ringing in the ears and has not yet discovered and addressed the root cause, schedule them for a complete chiropractic neurological exam with their Kennesaw area Chiropractor today!
