The American Tinnitus Association (ATA) estimates that more than 50 million Americans experience tinnitus — ringing, whistling, hissing or roaring noises in the ears. And celebrities are no exception. A number of well-known musicians suffer from tinnitus, including:
- Coldplay’s Chris Martin
- Phil Collins
Chris Martin is even supporting a campaign called Action On Hearing Loss – pretty cool!
At Clear Passage Phsyical Therapy, we’ve found that tinnitus appears to be the result of dysfunction of the temporomandibular joint (TMJ) or “jaw bone point.” We recognize that the alignment of delicate TM joints is dependent on the body structure that supports it. If the pelvis, spine, neck and fascial support structures of the head and jaw are under stress and out of balanced alignment, the TMJs will compensate in response, leading to pain and symptoms such as tinnitus.
Our therapists work to create a stable foundation at your pelvis and lower back, which supports the rest of your spine up to your TM joints. Learn more about natural treatment for tinnitus.
