Are your ears ringing? If so you may have tinnitus in Grand Rapids MI.

You have probably heard that means someone is talking about you, that might be true, but in our experience, the real reason is much more complex. Ringing in the ears, or tinnitus can be caused by loud noises, head injuries, or food allergies. It can also be caused by poor posture and head placement. Most people don't call their chiropractor when their ears are ringing but for many, this may be the best thing to do.

Tinnitus is not a disorder, it is a symptom of another problem. The diagnosis of tinnitus explains the symptoms, like ear ringing, buzzing, or clicking, but several conditions may cause it.

Most commonly, if there is no history of noise damage, then the cause of tinnitus is posture-related. Postures that have the head jutting forward, in front of the shoulders are at an even higher risk of tinnitus. This type of posture is very common today, with millions of Americans that spend most of their day at a desk or looking at their phones.

Why You Should Fix Tinnitus

Not only can ringing in the ears be annoying but it can cause other issues for social and mental health. The constant ringing can hinder one's ability to fall asleep or be attentive during the day. Medical studies have even associated chronic tinnitus with the development of anxiety and depression. This shows that the ringing or buzzing is much more than just a background noise, it can affect nearly all aspects of life.
