Tinnitus and Vertigo Relief Therapy
Tinnitus Caused By the Outer Ear
In the outer ear swelling in the ear canal from a swimmer’s ear can cause someone to hear noise that isn’t there. Additionally, swollen blood vessels in the skin of the ear canal or in the eardrum can cause “beating” variety of tinnitus that sounds like a heart pulsating.
Tinnitus Caused By the Middle Ear
Tinnitus can be caused by swelling of the delicate lining of the middle ear resulting from an allergy or infection.
Repeated ear infections can cause scar tissue in the middle ear can cause scarring that can close off tiny blood vessels in the middle ear and cause pulsing tinnitus.
Tinnitus Caused In the Inner Ear
When the fluid pressure in the inner ear chambers is disturbed, head noise can result. This disturbance might be caused by infections, allergies, or circulatory disturbances. These things can hurt the delicate membranes covering the inner ear.
Vertigo is the sensation that the world around you is spinning.
Vertigo can have a number of causes including:
- Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo (BPPV) – where certain head movements trigger vertigo. It is often associated with a minor to severe blow to your head
- Labyrinthitis – which is an inner ear infection
- Migraines – very severe headaches
- Vestibular Neuronitis – This is the inflammation of the vestibular nerve. The vestibular nerve helps with balance control and it runs between the inner ear and the brain.
- Allergy-Related Sinus Congestion Induced Vertigo – Allergies can clog the Eustachian tube. The Eustachian tube connects your middle ear to the back of your throat. It is involved in regulating your balance by equalizing the pressure in your middle ear with the air pressure around you.
Some types of vertigo can be helped by lymphatic drainage. The types of vertigo caused by allergy congestion of the eustachian tube can often be remedied through Electro-Lymphatic Therapy (ELT).
ELT is a painless procedure that can induce draining of the sinus cavities deep in the head. It also can help to drain the eustachian tubes.
Other forms of vertigo that are caused by an inflamed nerve may be helped by Pulsed ElectroMagnetic Field (PEMF) Therapy. PEMF Therapy is effective at reducing inflammation.
