Tinnitus is often referred to as “ringing in the ears,” but it can include sounds of buzzing, hissing, whistling, swooshing, and clicking. Tinnitus can be a symptom from many different things. One of these can be from tight muscles in the neck, jaw, and/or shoulder area. These stretches may help relieve cervical tinnitus.
The muscles around the jaw area can cause pressure around the ear. Massaging this area can help loosen up the muscles reducing tightness that might cause symptoms.
Upper trapezius, levator scapulae, and scalenes/sternocleidomastoid (SCM) stretches all do a great job of helping to lengthen and relax the muscles around the neck and ear.
Finally chin tucks not only help loosen up the muscles in the neck area, but they also help reset the muscles that are often overstretched from bad posture.
