    First thought I had is to talk to a Physical Therapist! They know much about this issue and are a great source of info! Plus, I don't know too many PT's that won't adore a ear bent in their direction, since what they know is very very important and not listened to as much as it should be .

    I think they would be an excellent source of info for you!

    Good luck...
