Physical therapy researchers at Antwerp University Hospital in Belgium assessed the effect of multimodal physical therapy on patients with severe, nonfluctuating, subjective tinnitus that had been stable for 3 months combined with neck complaints. Exclusion criteria included vertigo, objective tinnitus, Meniere disease, severe depression, progressive middle ear pathology, intracranial pathology, traumatic cervical spine injury, tumors, and history of cervical spine surgery. Patients were randomized to an immediate-start group (n=19) or a 6-week delayed-start group (n=19).
