Advanced Rejuvenation has been working on putting together one of the most cutting-edge therapies for the treatment of inner ear conditions. Presently we are focused on the combination of physical adjustments to the bone fragments of the skull, which also releases certain connective cells surrounding the ear, and laser therapy applied to the particular ear.

To understand exactly how these treatments work you need a good understanding of hair cellular material.

Hair cells within the inner ear are the nerve cells that allow all of us to perceive sound waves. They are essential for our stability, hearing and proper brain function. Without them we might be deaf and disoriented. If hair cells are usually damaged in any way, we suffer permanent hearing loss or even debilitating balance disorders. We are finding these insufficiencies will also be intimately connected to our brain function and these deficiencies may cause issues with proper coordination of the eyes and movement from the body. Since the autonomic nervous system is also wired via these pathways function of the gut, heart, liver, kidney and bladder can all suffer from issues from your tresses cell’ s. With these little cells being so important you should think this would be a major area of new medical breakthroughs… yet it’ s not really compared to other areas of medicine!

What are these hair cellular material?

Because under a microscope they look as though they have a tiny hair protruding from their website, they are called hair cells. Stereocilia are the organ made from hair cells, and they bend in response to sound or various other mechanical influence. There are two types: auditory and vestibular. Auditory hair cells which detect sound are located within the cochlea of the inner ear. Movements of the stereocilia are usually transmitted to the brain and interpreted as sound.

Our sense of stability is also made possible through vestibular hair cells. These are situated in vestibular organs.   Besides loud noises ototoxic medicines (drugs which damage the hearing), Lyme disease as well as other bacterial infections, viral infections and trauma can all harm hair cells.

The good news is that the possibility of hair cell regeneration in mammals has been confirmed!

Inner Hearing laser therapy must be performed with specialized lasers along with machine settings that have been discovered by Dr . Amon Kaiser in Germany.

Laserlight therapy might hold the most promise for those suffering listening to loss, tinnitus and balance disorders. Several doctors are already working with the application of laser therapy for regeneration of the curly hair cells in the inner ear. The concept is that by providing energy in the form of photons into the inner ear the hair tissues can utilize that energy to repair and regenerate on their own. Dr . Kaiser has been working with lasers for more than two decades after his father pioneered the methods in the 70’ h. It is well known that laser therapy can have an impact on growth factors and stem cell activation. Each stem cells and growth factors have been studied simply by major medical institutions and both have shown hair cellular regeneration effects. Another aspect of this treatment is there is a higher safety profile with little risk of injury as well as the reported results seems to show efficacy in hearing reduction, tinnitus and balance due to inner ear damage.

Why are manipulations and functional neurology applied to our US based treatment protocols?

Meninges or Dura Mater may get adhesions that can cause ears ringing, hearing loss and balance disorders.   There are thick connective tissues that wind, wrap and connect to the interior lining of the cranial bones. These connective tissues these are known as dura mater (dura) which in Latin mean “ challenging mother”. “ Tough” because it has 2, 000 pound. ’ s per square inch of strength plus “ mother” because it acts to protect the very sensitive cells of your central nervous system. The dura actually becomes the white wines of your eyes and winds ingot he lining from the sinuses as well as into the area around the inner ear. I usually like to give the example of a swamp versus a water. Which one is a healthier environment? The river, of course , since it has good circulation of nutrients and keeps matters clean and free of debris and toxins. Circulation acts in order to “ bring in the groceries and take out the garbage”. Without this organs and tissues in your body become a mating ground for virus and bacteria which has been shown to be a significant cause of stress and damage to the inner ear. Lymphatics are the channels the ears, as well as most other parts of the body, use to create what’ s called “ drainage”. When you have poor drainage you have a swamp and a perfect terrain pertaining to microbial growth. On top of this, there is poor nutrient delivery associated with key vitamin, amino acids and minerals to provide building blocks regarding proper maintenance and repair of damaged tissue. This is exactly what Functional Cranial Release (FCR) works on with the specific endo-nasal balloon manipulations to release these tissues and turn the internal ear environment in to a river. This can lead to recovery and regeneration of the cells and tissues in the inner ear.

Besides this benefit, the particular combination of the cranial adjustments combined with the functional neurology, continues to be seen to make significant improvements to cases of listening to loss, tinnitus and balance disorders, which are due to nervous system causes. Many times it is impossible for the brain, eyes plus muscles of the neck and spine NOT to suffer discrepancy. With functional neurology we have specific ways we start the nervous system using a variety of modalities based on exactly what your exam findings are. Many times exercises are recommended to perform in the office and at home.
