    The best treatment for hearing loss and deafness is broad and varied depending on the source of the problem.  What I would like to share with you is something that may seem remote and odd or even a great yarn, but have you considered Chiropractic care?

    I need to be honest in telling you I am a very conservative Chiropractor and never about making sweeping statements about what results may be gained from Chiropractic care, however, the foundations of Chiropractic care dating back to D D Palmer refer to a Chiropractic treatment that helped someone with a hearing loss issue.

    Chiropractic care is about reducing nerve interference.  What a Chiropractor typically looks for when treating a client are areas where joint mobility is compromised.  Interestingly the C2/C3 area in what we call the upper cervical spine may affect hearing and ear function.

    If you have not considered Chiropractic care, perhaps it's something you may want to look into.

    Jessica has provided excellent advice. You need to have the type of hearing loss and degree of loss assessed by a university trained audiologist and may or may not need to see an ENT along the way.
