Transcript: One form of tinnitus is caused by an inflammation in the middle ear or the inner ear.  There are little tiny hair cells in the ear that relate to motion. That’s a minimal cause of tinnitus. It’s not usually coming from there, most of the time it’s coming from the brain.  But if you do have a problem that’s in the inner ear, then local therapy, a Micropulse or a Flexpulse, could come in very handy just to treat that area locally.
