A. There are a variety of different treatment options available to you to treat your tinnitus in Attleboro, from drug treatments to sound therapies to even dental treatments.

Q. How can my Attleboro chiropractor treat my tinnitus?
A. Tinnitus can also be brought about by any injury in the cervical spine. However, tinnitus is just a symptom of this misalignment and has nothing to do with your hearing. Since tinnitus can often stem from back or spine problems, that’s where we come in.
Research has found that by repositioning the neck at the base of the head to realign it properly, we can actually reduce or stop ringing in the ears. Many patients start to notice a reduction in their symptoms after several adjustments, and we can help to make living with tinnitus more manageable.
