It is not unusual for a person who recently experienced some type of trauma or injury to their neck or head region to also experience tinnitus, a ringing that occurs in one or both ears. The trauma could be the result of a sudden injury incurred from a car accident or a gradual degeneration in the spinal area from arthritis, sometimes known as degenerative disc disease.
Patients may describe their tinnitus as a constant humming, hissing, ringing or swooshing noise in one or both ears. Some patients also report intermittent clicking noises as well. The upper cervical region in particular, is vulnerable to accompanying issues with the ears such as tinnitus, vertigo and dizziness. For those patients who have not been able to find relief from more traditional methods, they may want to consider a chiropractic adjustment for their tinnitus, particularly if they have recently sustained a neck injury or they are known to have arthritis of the spine.
A series of chiropractic adjustments made in the cervical region may help to reduce or even eliminate the bothersome effects of tinnitus. Some chiropractors may also suggest patients take supplements such as vitamin B-12, inositol and choline bitartrate, the latter two which are also part of the vitamin B family. These B vitamins are also available in over-the-counter remedies for ear tinnitus and are recommended because B vitamins help support the nervous system, including those nerves assisting in proper auditory function.
