This story of Sudden Hearing Loss that recovered after Chiropractic care was shared to us by one of our Mississauga patients. Overall while I do not remember exact dates over the course of 4 months I recovered fully.  I strongly believe this is directly attributable to Dr.
If you are suffering with hearing loss, a chiropractic check up to know if your spine and spinal nerves are subluxated which may be impacting your hearing loss is an important step for your health. An audiogram shows the softest sounds a person can hear at different frequencies (pitches). The frequencies displayed on the horizontal axis of the audiogram are those most crucial to hearing and understanding conversation, with low frequencies on the left and higher frequencies on the right.
Information on audiograms is encoded using symbols, each of which represents a different test condition.
Audiologists present stimuli via bone and air conduction to determine the type of hearing loss.
When the outer or middle ear is blocked or damaged, bone conduction thresholds will be better than air conduction hearing levels. Sensorineural hearing loss occurs when there is damage to the cochlea or to the auditory nerve pathways. Test method and desired patient response is determined by patient age and developmental level. As children approach age 2 ? years, VRA is no longer effective because it cannot hold the child’s interest for the duration of the test. Preschool: At 2 ? years of age, most children learn games used in conditioned play audiometry (CPA).
School-aged Children: At around age 4 years, children are ready to respond in a more adult-like manner known as a voluntary response. My post about Hearing Loss: Taking Good Care For Healthy Ears was about some common types of hearing loss, how they develop, how they can be prevented and often treated and tips to take care of your ear health so you can keep your hearing intact for as long as possible.
Hearing loss is measured by degree, separated into levels related to a person’s sound thresholds. Depending on the type of hearing loss, whether it is sensorineural hearing loss, conductive hearing loss or mixed hearing loss, the treatment will vary. Severe and profound hearing loss is characterized by the inability to clearly hear sounds below the 70dB HL. Depending on the type and severity of the hearing loss, a hearing implant may be used to stimulate the inner ear.
If you or someone you know is suffering from hearing loss, reach out to your doctor for help right away.

Imagine waking up one morning to discover that you had spontaneously lost most of your hearing in one or both ears, with no warning or explanation. If you or a loved one experiences a sudden hearing loss, please call your doctor or visit an ER or urgent care center immediately!

The hearing threshold is determined to be the lowest intensity (dBHL) at which multiple presentations of a frequency specific tone were detected 50% of the time. For example, the sound “sss” presents at a high frequency, while an “ooo” presents at a lower frequency.
Air conduction testing involves the use of headphones, insert earphones, or speakers to deliver sounds to the ear canal through the middle ear and into the inner ear. Conductive hearing loss is defined as air conduction thresholds greater than 15 dB (outside the normal range) with bone conduction thresholds within the normal range.
Consistent, reliable behavioral threshold testing is possible with children as young as 6 months developmental age. Ranging from ‘mild’ to ‘profound’ levels, hearing loss can vary in severity from person to person based on the type of condition and specific circumstances surrounding the impairment. Cochlear implants are a type of implanted hearing device designed for people with sensorineural hearing loss. As every type of hearing loss can vary in degree and nature of disruption, it is best to consult with a specialist to see which implant option may be best suited for an individual. Under these conditions, your lungs can gather up to three times more oxygen than would be possible breathing pure oxygen at normal air pressure. Many insurance carriers are approving this costly procedure without question for victims of sudden hearing loss. The shaded region on the audiogram shows the range where most conversational speech occurs. In general, a red “O” is used to represent the right ear while a blue “X” represents the left ear. To the right is an audiogram of an individual with conductive hearing loss in the left ear. Traditionally, the test setting involves the child and the audiologist sitting at a small table in a sound booth.


Often, a patient suffering from hearing loss can be treated with surgery, medicine or hearing aid or assistive listening devices. With the use of standard hearing aids, many people suffering from mild to moderate hearing loss may vastly improve their hearing without surgery or medical attention.
Bone conduction implants have also proven to work well for those experiencing with conductive or mixed hearing loss. Human blood carries this oxygen throughout the body, stimulating the release of substances called growth factors and stem cells, which promote healing. 2 months of regular adjustments I began to have moments where I could hear crackling (almost like an un tuned radio) at random moments. In bone conduction testing a bone oscillator is placed behind the ear on the mastoid bone to deliver sounds directly to the inner ear by vibration, bypassing the outer and middle ear. Notice that air conduction results show a moderate hearing loss while bone conduction results show that the cochlea and sensorineural pathway are responding within the range of normal hearing sensitivity. The child is trained to respond to a stimulus by performing a task such as putting block in a bucket or a peg in a board. In the past, sudden onset hearing loss (occurring within 72 hours) has had very limited treatment options. Normal hearing is defined as having threshold at an intensity greater than or equal to 15dB HL. Comparing air conduction and bone conduction thresholds helps determine whether a hearing loss is classified conductive, sensorineural, or mixed.
In a sound-treated room, an audiologist can quickly train a child to look towards something interesting like a puppet or video when a sound is heard (i.e. At one time, it was theorized that a viral componenet was involved, however, treatment with antivirals has shown no benefit. Patients with profound hearing loss often do not regain any hearing function with steroid treatment. In cases where a child will not or cannot wear earphones for ear-specific threshold testing, sounds may be presented via speakers (in the “soundfield”). This technique enables audiologists to draw general conclusions about a child’s hearing but does not give any ear-specific information.
Arrows connected to audiogram symbols indicate a no response value, indicating that at the specified frequency no response was detected. The Guidelines for Audiometric Symbols can be found on the website of the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA).
