Chiropractors for Tinnitus

on the Sunshine Coast

Is the persistent sounds of ringing or buzzing in your ears disrupting your daily life? With over 34 years experience, our dedicated team is here to address the root causes of your tinnitus and bring you relief.

What is tinnitus and what causes it?

Tinnitus is the perception of noise or ringing in the ears without an external sound source, which can manifest as a constant or intermittent sound.

It is often associated with conditions such as age-related hearing loss, exposure to loud noises, or issues with the auditory system. Other causes include earwax blockage, changes in ear bone, Meniere's disease, head or neck injuries, vascular issues, certain medications, and temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorders.

The impact of tinnitus goes far beyond auditory sensations. With the potential to disrupt sleep, concentration and emotional well-being, it can complicate our daily activities, work tasks, personal relationships and our life in general.

Approximately one in three people in Australia have experienced tinnitus at some point in their life.

We employ gentle adjustments to correct misalignments, aiming to improve blood flow, reduce inflammation, and optimise nerve function. By addressing these factors, we strive to contribute to the relief of tinnitus symptoms.
