Meniere’s disease has vertigo as one of its major symptoms and is often referred to as idiopathic endolymphatic hydrops. This condition makes normal daily activities difficult during an attack. Many feel as if they can only dream about getting long-lasting relief.
The most common symptoms associated with Meniere’s disease are:
- Tinnitus – a loud ringing or buzzing noise in the ears
- Temporary hearing loss that often becomes permanent if not cared for properly
- Extreme vertigo that is sometimes accompanied by nausea
Meniere’s attacks can go on for hours at a time. Some suggestions a family physician may provide to keep the attacks at bay are:
- Reduce the daily consumption of caffeine and salt
- Take medication to reduce fluid in the ears
- In extreme cases: surgery, especially if medication does not work to control symptoms
While these suggestions may help to a degree, addressing the underlying cause is important. This can provide a long-lasting solution to the problem of Meniere’s. Thankfully, there is a way available to do this that is natural and safe.
Upper Cervical Chiropractors and Meniere’s Relief
The spine has the vital job of protecting the spinal cord, thereby allowing communication to and from the brain and body to flow without interruption. If one of the top bones of the neck become misaligned, the brainstem is put under stress or pressure, leading to these signals potentially becoming distorted. This can cause problems like vertigo to arise.
Through upper cervical chiropractic care, it can be determined if the bones of the neck need an adjustment. Using exact measurements that allow us to find the misalignment, we can then work with our patients to correct the problem. Once the bones are back in their original position, communication in the body can be restored.
A 52-year-old man with Meniere’s was observed in a case study. After getting his upper cervical vertebrae realigned, his symptoms diminished greatly over the course of 5 weeks of care.
