Question
Can a chiropractic adjustment cause tinnitus?  Can a chiropractic adjustment help relieve tinnitus or the ringing in your ears.

Answer
Loretta,

Thank you for your question.

Anecdotal reports exist both claiming that spinal manipulation (usually of the neck) have caused and cured tinnitus. As such, these reports are not condemnation or confirmation of those claims either way.

I hope that this helps to answer your question.
