Whiplash, Hearing Loss, and Upper Cervical Manipulation

“Little known sequelae of sprains of the cervical spine” Schweiz Rundsch Med Prax. [This is a German journal, and the article is in German. The abstract is also in English]

“After cervical sprain not only pain and neuropsychological disturbances may occur, but also the following sequelae: cervical dystonia, and torticollis, dizziness, hearing loss for low frequencies, dysphonia and globus.”

[Globus is a sensation of something stuck or of a lump or tightness in the throat.]

“Except for dystonia the symptoms often respond to manipulation of a blocked articulation between occiput and atlas or axis and the third cervical vertebra.”
