What Is Tinnitus & How You Can Recover From It?
Tinnitus refers to noises heard in the ear, which are unrelated to the surrounding environment. These noises can vary depending on the person's condition and aren't related to a particular psychiatric condition. Depending on the patient's symptoms, these noises impact one or both ears.
In general, a person refers to this condition as an unrelenting noise (buzzing, whistling) that continues throughout the day. The noise of tinnitus lingers in the background, whether patients take a shower, head out for a walk, or sit around reading a book.
Initially, the symptoms are infrequent. However, with neglect, it becomes constant and agonizing. Don’t worry. We can help! Before discussing our tinnitus treatment in Malaysia, let's cover some background information.
It's important to note; tinnitus is a generic term associated with this collection of symptoms. It can vary based on the type of noise, intensity, and how long it persists. Tinnitus's symptoms include a whistling noise that can sometimes be a buzz in the ear or even fullness in the ear. Also, some report hearing their heartbeat in their ear termed as pulsatile tinnitus.
Causes Of Tinnitus Include:
- Trigeminal Neuralgia
- Ear Injury
- Ear Infections
- Trapped Earwax
- Traumatic Brain Injury
- Stiff Middle Ear Bones
- Cardiovascular Disease
- Middle Ear Problems
Common Symptoms Of Tinnitus Include:
- Ringing/Buzzing in Ear(s)
- Fullness in one or both ears
- High-Pitched Noises
- Fluctuation of Volume in Ears
Regardless of the cause, Chiropractic Specialty Center® can customize a specific treatment plan for you. Best of all, our tinnitus treatment in Malaysia is safe and effective. It is the best natural solution you have.
Can A TMJ problem Cause Ringing In The Ears?
One of the more prevalent causes of tinnitus would involve TMJ (Temporomandibular joint) disorder. The jawbone and the temporal bone form the jaw joint or TMJ. The medical term for a Jaw problem is TMD or Temporomandibular Joint Dysfunction. A TMD is common where the jaw joint malfunctions or is damaged. In chronic cases, the articular disc displaces. The articular disc serves as a spacer, shock absorber, and point for jaw joint movements. Repetitive motions, bruxism (grinding of teeth), and traumatic events can damage the jaw joint's articular disc. As such, our tinnitus treatment will also be focused on getting your jaws back to proper alignment, if needed.
The jaw joint's articular disc is held firmly in place by the jaw joint’s encapsulating ligaments. Also, it is anchored to the jaw joints muscles (pterygoid muscles) anteriorly and the middle ear posteriorly. Continued stresses such as grinding of teeth during sleep (bruxism) can weaken the supporting ligament that holds the articular disc in place. Weakness in the supporting ligaments results in the displacement of the disc. Once the jaw joint's articular disc is displaced, it tugs on the anterior and posterior attachment points. This tugging motion can irritate the articular disc's attachment point in the middle ear and cause tinnitus. So, if you suffer from tinnitus, you must have your jaw joint assessed by a clinical expert familiar with TMD and tinnitus.
Chiropractic Combined With Physiotherapy For TInnitus Treatment
The chiropractors and physiotherapists of Chiropractic Specialty Center® are experts you need for focused tinnitus treatment in Malaysia. In addition to assessing your jaw joint, our experts evaluate your upper neck and base of the skull. The neck, base of the skull, and muscles of the upper chest are common causative factors in patients who suffer from tinnitus or Meniere’s disease.
Trigeminal Neuralgia, Meniere’s Disease, Ringing In The Ears, The Jaw Joint & Neck
The most striking clinical finding in tinnitus and Meniere’s disease is that the close correlation it has with the jaw joint and the upper neck. The nerve that controls the sensory and motor functions of the face chewing biting, and the jaw joint is the trigeminal nerve. The trigeminal nerve or the fifth cranial nerve (CN V) is the largest of all cranial nerves. There are 12-paired cranial nerves in total. They arise from the brain stem and control much of our various functions in the body.
In simple terms, trigeminal neuralgia is a condition that causes pain in the face, gums, teeth, or jaws. Attacks of pain are often sudden and short-lived, lasting seconds to a couple of minutes. As the name applies, trigeminal neuralgia is the result of compression, irritation, or damage of the trigeminal nerve (CN v or the 5th Cranial Nerve). Tinnitus, Meniere’s disease, headaches, migraines, and jaw pain are common symptoms associated with trigeminal neuralgia.
Benefits Of Chiropractic Care For Tinnitus
Targeted corrective chiropractic treatments of the upper cervical spine have shown significant clinical advantages in treatments of trigeminal neuralgia. To understand the role of corrective research-based chiropractic, we need to know how pain is perceived. We feel facial and neck pain when the somatosensory cortex of the thalamus is activated. That activation is the result of signals received from the trigeminal cervical nucleus. As mentioned earlier, the trigeminal cervical nucleus is in the uppermost portions of the spinal cord at the level of C1-C3.
When the upper cervical spinal segments or the base of the skull are improperly aligned or injured, it leads to excessive firing or activations of the trigeminal cervical nucleus. Therefore, correcting minor misalignments of the upper neck is beneficial for patients with facial pain, jaw pain, headaches, migraines, tinnitus, or Meniere’s disease. Our tinnitus treatment will include treating your upper cervical spine as well as jaws and ears.
Benefits Of Research-Based Tinnitus Treatments Through Corrective Chiropractic & Clinical Physiotherapy
There are many advantages of corrective tinnitus treatment with chiropractors and physical therapists (physiotherapists). One of those benefits would be the well-rounded or holistic nature of these treatments. Corrective chiropractic and clinical physiotherapy in Malaysia are designed to correct the condition instead of merely reducing symptoms. Doctors of chiropractic and clinical physiotherapists of chiropractic Specialty Center® accomplishes this through targeted treatments rendered through hands-on methods, instruments, and advanced therapy techniques. So, if you suffer from tinnitus, Meniere’s disease, headaches, migraines, neck pain, jaw pain, or slipped disc, visit our center to correct and repair the actual cause of the ringing in your ears through our tinnitus treatment program.
