What Is The Difference Between Meniere’s & Tinnitus?
Tinnitus is a condition best described as a ringing in the ears and can accompany hearing loss in advanced stages. Meniere’s disease, on the other hand, is a combination of vertigo, tinnitus, and hearing loss. In other words, patients with Meniere’s will complain of balancing issues, ringing-like symptoms in the ear, and hearing loss.
The ringing sounds in both tinnitus and Meniere’s often present as persistent disturbing sounds, making it the most commonly described symptom in both conditions. Some may report these sounds as escaping air sounds, roaring sounds, running water, buzzing, or hammering sounds.
Tinnitus is a disorder that impacts the middle ear, while Meniere’s impacts the inner ear. Chiropractic combined with physiotherapy can help subside the symptoms of tinnitus and Meniere’s. Unfortunately, clinical studies are scarce on the impact of chiropractic treatment on Meniere’s disease. However, a few published case reports have cited improvements in vertigo symptoms, ringing in the ears, and even improved hearing with chiropractic care. We have provided a link to this case report on a patient’s chiropractic management with Meniere’s disease for your review.
Tinnitus Treatment That Fix Referred Symptoms
Referred pain or symptoms are physical conditions that you feel in one part of your body caused by damage or injury to another part of the body. For example, for patients with thigh and leg pain’ doctors find the source of their symptoms in the low back.
Similarly, the ringing, fullness, or tinnitus symptoms you feel are probably coming from the nearby structures in your neck and jaws. A published study in frontiers in Neuroscience (Nikalas et al.) reported that nearly 40% of TMJ (jaw joint patients) experience tinnitus. Therefore, patients with jaw pain need to be assessed by CSC’s jaw specialists for tinnitus, and the tinnitus patients to be evaluated for jaw problems.
In another published study in the American Journal of Otolaryngology (R A Levine), the author reported a strong correlation between upper neck problems causing tinnitus due to irritation of the cranial nerves near the skull’s base in the upper neck. In other words, patients with tinnitus must get the neck issues treated after a thorough assessment at our award-winning chiropractic & physiotherapy center.
The British Tinnitus Association issued a detailed report based on published research in regards to tinnitus. To association linked the actual cause of tinnitus to jaw problems and neck issues.

Our tinnitus treatment program is designed to correct co-conditions that involve the upper neck and the jaws. With improved neck and jaw joints, symptoms may disappear or at least improve. Tinnitus can range from a sensorineural disorder in the brain to damage in the inner or middle ear. However, in the vast majority of cases, patients presented to us have exhibited a conductive mechanical disorder in the middle, resulting from disorders at the base of skulls, neck, or jaws.
In addition to the middle ear’s mechanical disorders, other causes such as a sensorineural reaction in the brain, sensorineural loss due to the inner ear’s issues, and harmful effects of medication are common causes of tinnitus. There are approximately 200 different health problems, which are either directly or indirectly related to tinnitus. First, you must know what the common reasons for tinnitus are.

Treatment For Tinnitus, Meniere’s, Hearing Loss, Tingling & Ringing In Ears Treatment
Tinnitus and Meniere’s Disease are two of the most common symptoms associated with hearing loss. There are two distinct types of hearing loss, sensorineural hearing loss and conductive hearing loss. The sensorineural hearing loss results from inner ear damage, while the conductive hearing loss is from disorders or damage to the middle ear. Other types of hearing loss linked to tinnitus are age-related hearing loss and traumatic noise exposure damaging the auditory system.
The exact biological correlation between hearing loss and tinnitus is still being researched and studied. The loss of specific frequencies can affect the way the brain processes sound. In other words, with this type of dysfunction, the brain receives fewer stimuli. It will adapt and change. Tinnitus could be the brain’s way of dealing with the frequencies that it can no longer obtain through hearing loss.
Why Should You Get Tinnitus Treatment At The Onset Of Symptoms?
Tinnitus that leads to a hearing loss is often due to an injury, side effects of medication, or neglect of a prolonged middle or inner ear disorder. This type of hearing loss can vary with different frequencies. Most patients with a tinnitus-related hearing loss may find difficulty finding the root cause. The conventional tests as the tinnitus-related hearing loss may not be clinically measurable through the traditional tests. And as such, it is called hidden hearing loss.
The most common sign of a tinnitus-related hearing loss is if you have difficulty hearing background noise. Therefore, to avoid such complications, opt for early management and treatments. iSo, accurate diagnosis and timely tinnitus treatment are of utmost importance in avoidance of hearing loss.

Obstructions In The Middle Ear Cause Of Hearing Loss
Pressure can build up in the inner ear when there are blockages in the ear canal, affecting how the eardrum works. If the canal’s obstruction touches the eardrum, it can irritate it and cause tinnitus or Meniere’s perception. In addition, there are common middle ear obstructions such as loose hair from the ear canal, excessive earwax, and foreign objects’ dirt.
In many of these cases, the removal of the obstruction will alleviate some of the symptoms. However, there are other situations where the obstruction causes permanent damage to the ear. This will lead to chronic tinnitus. Therefore, our advice to all is to seek tinnitus treatment as the onset of symptoms. Neglect may result in damage or, worse, hearing loss.
Ringing In The Ears linked To Head & Neck Trauma
Muscles, nerves, and blood flow problems caused by severe injuries to the head and neck can cause tinnitus. People who have tinnitus linked to head and neck pain or neck trauma will suffer from higher volume tinnitus. They will also have greater variability in the location of their tinnitus, the actual sound, and the frequency. Tinnitus related to TMJ issues (Jaw Pain & TMD) and head and neck trauma are often referred to as somatic tinnitus. If you have tinnitus, let CSC’s experienced clinical teams assess the route causes, including those that may be coming from your jaw joint or neck. We use highly efficient assessment methods and holistic treatment of neck pain and jaw issues to help get rid of ringing in the ears fast.
Link Between The Jaws, Tinnitus & Meniere’s Disease
Temporomandibular joint disorder (jaw pain or TMD) is the cause of another type of somatic tinnitus. This joint is where the lower jaw connects to the skull and is located directly in front of the ear. Therefore, any damage to the cartilage, muscles, or ligaments of this joint can cause tinnitus. In addition, some of the joint’s ligaments and nerve connections are shared with the middle ear structures because the joint is adjacent to the auditory system. Therefore, our clinical teams will thoroughly evaluate your jaws, upper neck back, and even the base of the skull before proceeding with tinnitus treatment. This assessment aims to identify the root cause and nerve issues (nerve pain and disorder of the nervous systems) related to your tinnitus.
People who have tinnitus caused by TMJ will often experience pain in their jaw and face. They will also have a limited ability to move their jaw and hear popping sounds when they talk or chew. Our Doctor of Chiropractic is your best hope of having a proper assessment of possible somatic tinnitus causes. Let our expert clinical teams assess your neck, base of skull, and jaws to rule out somatic tinnitus. Somatic tinnitus is the most common and often most neglected form of tinnitus. Neglect of somatic tinnitus can lead to permanent changes and damage, resulting in years of pain and suffering. Visit one of the centers and get evaluated by the best chiropractors in Malaysia today.
Ringing In The Ears, Barometric Trauma & Sinus Pressure
Nasal congestion, sinus infections, and flu can increase pressures in the middle ear. Barometric pressures also increase the pressure in the middle ears. Whenever the pressure increases in the middle ear, you may experience fullness, ringing, or some form of a hearing disorder. Increased pressure will impact the hearing and can cause tinnitus. Acute barometric trauma results from extreme changes in water and air pressure. This trauma will also damage the middle ear causing tinnitus.
There are many potential causes of barometric trauma, including diving or snorkeling. Concussive explosive blasts and flying with extreme elevation changes can also cause this injury. If you are a chronic sinus sufferer or one who has been subjected to barometric trauma, visit us, we can help. Targeted chiropractic treatments have been found essential for sinusitis patients as well as those subjected to barometric trauma.

Ototoxic Drugs & Hearing Disorders
Many people do not realize that tinnitus is a potential side effect of certain prescription medications. In most cases and with most of these drugs, tinnitus is a temporary and acute side effect. However, some ototoxic drugs can cause permanent tinnitus, including:
- Quinine-based medicines
- Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs
- Certain cancer medications
- Certain antibiotics
- Water pills and diuretics
If you believe that tinnitus is a side effect of your medication, you need to consult with the doctor who prescribed it. It would help if you did not stop taking your medication without speaking to the physician who prescribed them for you. In many cases, the risks associated with stopping the medication exceed the potential benefits.
