Chiropractic manipulation for Eustachian tube dysfunction?

by SJ

Hi Dr. Lewis,

On some non-professional website I read that chiropractic manipulation can relieve Eustachian tube dysfunction. Do you have any experience with that?

I am also curious if you know anything about using niacin to clear plugged ears or reduce tinnitis.

I really appreciate your website; it is a great resource!

Thank you, SJ.
So far as I know there's only anecdotal evidence that chiropractic manipulation, of the spine, I take it, may help with upper respiratory tract conditions. However, absence of evidence is not the same as evidence of absence.

And, no, I know nothing of niacin for tinnitis, nor anything else I'm afraid.

Sorry, not to be more helpful.

Dr B

I just got mine adjusted. They tug hard on your ear and it breaks up scar tissue. YouTube has videos of it.
