A challenging and, for some, discouraging aspect of dealing with Meniere’s disease is that there is no definitive cause or cure. The common way of treating the condition only provides partial relief and includes medications for dizziness and nausea, diuretics to help reduce fluid volume and pressure in the ear, dietary restrictions, injections, and in severe cases surgery.
However, there has been some recent breakthrough for many Meniere’s sufferers who have turned to upper cervical chiropractic care as a natural and successful means of finding lasting relief. The incredible thing about upper cervical chiropractic is that it does not simple deal with symptoms. The goal and focus of this particular niche of chiropractic care is to discover the underlying root and solve the problem there.
Finding ways to treat and manage a health condition that is as debilitating as Meniere’s disease can be difficult. The route you choose to go is very important. For many of our patients who have come in for this condition, they share that they have exhausted all the care options they’ve heard of so far and that they are ready get real help. The good news is that there are answers, and the connection between Meniere’s disease and a specific misalignment in the upper cervical spine is becoming more and more apparent and well known as recent research continues to show similar evidence.
A study done in 2010 of 139 people who were medically diagnosed with Meniere’s disease were observed through a course of upper cervical chiropractic care:
A 2016 study followed the outcomes of 300 Meniere’s disease patients over a six-year period while they received upper cervical specific chiropractic care. The results were just as promising and amazing as the first study mentioned above:
Based on the impressive results of the research above, it’s easy to see that upper cervical chiropractic care is capable of bringing great relief to those with Meniere’s disease. The two major common threads between these studies are as follows:
If you suffer from Meniere’s disease symptoms, including vertigo episodes, and you can remember any kind of previously sustained head or neck injury, we strongly recommend that you have your spine examined by an upper cervical chiropractor. If it is an atlas misalignment that is contributing to your Meniere’s symptoms, we will be able to tend to the problem at the root cause and provide you with lasting relief.
