Poor posture at work, tension in the neck muscles or blockages of the cervical spine can affect a good blood circulation and impair supply to the ear and thus lead to tinnitus. But also bruxism is a possible trigger. Here physical therapy can be helpful taking care of these problems.

We analyze the structural strength of the spine and measure the mobility of the upper cervical spine. Are muscles shortened or sore and how is the mobility of the jaw? Depending on the findings, we design a treatment plan.

In the regional hospital as well as through our cooperating physical therapist we offer the following treatment options:

  • Manual therapy according to different concepts (Maitland, Mulligen, Spiral Dynamics) for mobilizing the cervical spine or the temporomandibular joint.
  • Posture training of the cervical spine with stretching and strengthening the weakened or strained muscles.
  • Massage / Trigger Point Treatments to release muscle tension.
  • Relaxation techniques, such as autogenic training, progressive muscle relaxation according to Jakobson, or water shiatsu, in order to reduce stress factors.
  • Craniosacral therapy to treat stress problems in the skull area, the brain and spinal cord.


Our goals are based on the needs of patients in accordance with the application of modern medical research results in order to meet the expectation for an optimal treatment outcome.
