Chiropractic / Applied Kinesiology Approach to Tinnitus

There are several types of tinnitus and a host of potential causes. As such, it is essential that the examination process for tinnitus is exhaustive.

When there's been trauma to the head or neck (directly or indirectly), Dr. Morrison uses precise Chiropractic adjusting with cranio-sacral therapy. Clinical nutrition is integrated when deficiencies exist (i.e. vitamin B12, iron, etc.), or whether the side effects of some medication need be offset with nutritional supplementation.

No matter the cause, by combining Chiropractic with A.K., Dr. Morrison seeks to provide highly effective therapy against tinnitus. The goal as always is to arrive at the roots of the problem and provide permanent resolution.
