TINNITUS

Acupuncture for tinnitus

Tinnitus is ringing, high pitch, low pitch, and distortions of the ear and hearing. Acupuncture is one of the only known modalities to effectively and repeatedly treat tonight us. The way behind how acupuncture treats tinnitus is by using an electroacupuncture to stimulate the nerves of the base of the skull, the inner ear, and the external ear while generating an electromagnetic field around those structures to effectively treat the symptoms of tinnitus.

It is noted that tinnitus has known nerves and structures that are affected but no known cause but based on the effectiveness of acupuncture in the treatment of tinnitus, it appears to me that tinnitus is mostly neurological with components of musculoskeletal imbalance is irritating and compressing the nerves that impact the inner ear. In some occurrences growths like tumors can have the same affective compressing the nerves in which this scenario surgery would be the better option. This is rare but can happen. Acupuncture treats all the other main causes of tinnitus.
