Chiropractic treatment for Tinnitus

I'd be interested to hear the communities views on this. I have a family friend who runs a successful chiropractic practice and has treated many members of my family, all of whom are happy with the outcome. I however remain a sceptic. Anyway, I had a consultation and was advised that there was a lot of misalignment of my jaw, neck etc, which would benefit from treatment. I did have a significant whiplash and concussion from a fall in August which resulted in a full hospital once-over (but no onset of t), so it could be that has got me all out of shape. I can alter the volume of my tinnitus by manipulating my jaw and I also sometimes get an increase in volume when walking/running. It might be psychosomatic, but if I get a tense neck/head the hissing volume goes up too.

I'd welcome any thought! Cheers, Steve

I've had chiropractic adjustments on several occasions for different problems. For me they worked brilliantly well so I'd be in favour of getting your bits-and-bobs straightened anyway, if only because they're not as they should be. Whether it would improve your T situation I have no idea.

There is a link in some people between their tinnitus and any jaw/neck problems:

Hope that helps.

Thanks Nic, that's a very useful article and certainly a complex part of the anatomy. I'm inclined to leave this path of treatment for the time being though. Steve
