To sum up what tinnitus is, imagine hearing ringing noises in your ears out of nowhere. These sounds are annoying, and it can be frustrating to know that they don’t have any source. Aside from the ringing sound, you can hear beeping, ticking, or buzzing noises.
Damaging your ears due to exposure to loud noise is one of the leading causes of the ringing in your ears. To name a few other reasons, head and neck injuries, allergies, aging, and stress can cause tinnitus.
Dr. Tsiglieris, a NUCCA chiropractor in Redwood City, explains that tinnitus usually indicates an ear or health problem. Here are some health conditions that list tinnitus as a symptom:
If you want your tinnitus gone, addressing the primary cause of the problem is the key. Suppose you listen to loud music or often hear loud noise before hearing the ringing sounds. You can easily assume that the loud noise is the reason for the symptom. So, your solution is to give your ears rest from these noises.
What would you do if the root of the problem is head or neck trauma? This is where NUCCA care comes in.
To better explain how Dr. Tsiglieris reduces tinnitus or ringing ear syndrome, let’s understand the connection between the neck and the ears.
The neck is a critical part of the body that serves several roles, like protecting the brainstem, balancing the head, and supporting the head for movements. The topmost bones in the neck, unfortunately, are prone to misaligning due to their functions.
The ear and the upper neck sit close to each other. So, misalignments in the neck can directly impact the ears, either causing pain or ringing in the ears. If this misalignment in your neck is left unchecked, you might develop far worse symptoms than tinnitus.
Fortunately, Dr. Tsigleris can fix this misalignment and give you peace from tinnitus. He practices NUCCA, a technique that focuses on the proper alignment of the neck. By gently realigning your neck, Dr. Tsiglieris can reverse the cause of tinnitus.
