The answer is yes. Clinically speaking it is called cervical tinnitus. In practice, these are whistles and ringing perceived in the ear in conjunction with the emergence of cervical pain and neck problems.
Massages and physiotherapy in general have a relaxing function on the muscles aimed at reducing the compression of some cervical nerves and sweeping away accumulated stress and tension. In these cases it is advisable to rely on professionals in the sector, avoiding being tempted by do-it-yourself, as a wrong exercise could accentuate the symptoms.
Cervical tinnitus, as objective tinnitus, generally resolves once the underlying cause has been identified and appropriately treated. To better deal with this transition phase, there are sound enrichment devices that allow you to relax thanks to the emission of sounds usually related to the world of nature, such as streams, waterfalls and rain, preferably continuous and with a broad spectrum. These devices, constantly stimulating the hearing, help reduce the volume of tinnitus and, in some cases, can even completely resolve it.
