The Foot Bone is Connected to the Ear Bone
Mainstream media doesn’t cover such events; it is intentional because it doesn’t want the public to become aware that physicians really do not understand how the body works. Case in point. Jennifer came to my practice with her boyfriend. She presented several symptoms relating to her ears:
- Popping sounds bilaterally
- Clogged feeling in both ears
- Pulling sensations bilaterally in the ears
- Fullness in her head: a feeling of suffocating from the inside out
Numerous healthcare practitioners including dentists, neurologists, chiropractors, were consulted and thousands of dollars were spent with no results. When the patient walked into my examining room, I noticed a foot pronation issue. Examination of her cranium exhibited rotation of her temporal bones, which have the potential of causing her reported ear symptoms. When the patient was tested for pronation, the maneuver clearly noted left foot pronation (dropped arch). When the patient was placed on foot supports, it immediately strengthened her muscle response. Support was placed in both her flip-flops. A subsequent one-week follow-up visit revealed that all her symptoms were totally resolved.
