We have recently had an increase in people coming to the clinic with ear problems.
Mostly the presenting complaint is of neck, shoulder and upper back pain and the sinus and ear complaints are relayed to me during the medical
case history questions.
I have noticed that following an osteopathic treatment to relieve neck muscle tension and improve neck mobility, patients report that the congestion is relieved.
The osteopathic treatment has had a positive effect on the lymphatic system in the neck which can clear the sinuses and eustacian tube (which drains from your ear to your throat).
Note: If you have wax or infection in your ear you may need to consult your GP.
