I have suffered from the onset of a high pitched pulsatile tinnitis within days after neck adjustment by a chiropractor (he stated he adjusted the top of the spine near the skull which he said is in the auditory system region). I returned to him several weeks later complaining of tinnitus and he performed the adjustments again. The tinnitus is now louder and in both ears. The volume reduces by 40-60% by the end of the day but after sleeping I wake up with it roaring. Twisting my head changes the pitch & loudness of the tinnitus & bending over or straining increases the loudness.

Can adjustments to the spine in the neck region give rise to tinnitus. Any suggestions to alleviate?

Silicone inserts leave radius and ulna pressure-free and provide intermittent compression to the soft tissue of the joint, leading to increased circulation, thus aiding in the resorption of swelling and edema.
