Question: When traveling on an airplane, what frequency pops our ears?

It's not a frequency that pops your ears when you're traveling on an airplane, but rather changes in air pressure. As the altitude changes during take-off and landing, air pressure decreases or increases. When this happens faster than your Eustachian tubes (connecting your middle ear and upper throat) can adjust, the unequal pressure causes your ears to feel blocked or 'popped.' If you feel this, you can alleviate the discomfort by yawning, swallowing, chewing gum, or using special earplugs designed for air travel. For people with severe issues, it might be necessary to use decongestants or special techniques. Please consult a healthcare professional if you experience severe or persistent discomfort.
