The Influence of Atlas Therapy on Tinnitus

Author(s): Bernd B. Kaute

We present questions and thoughts of an outsider on the proprioceptive input of the posterior small cervical muscles to the brainstem as a source of tinnitus. After treat.ment of whiplash injuries and other muscular conditions with Arlen's atlas therapy, some patlents reported that their tinnitus had abated with the muscular tensions. Atl~s therapy has been .proven to slacken the muscles and seems to quiet to normal levels afferent illlpuises to the bramstem. This has been proven to apply to nystagmus. We sought to determine whether it has the same effect on some forms of tinnitus.
