Vertigo Relief, Dizziness Relief, Dizzy, Meniere’s Relief, Vertigo, Dizziness, Meniere’s , Meniere’s Disease Meniere’s disease is a disorder of the inner ear and is characterized by the following symptoms:

  • Frequent ringing in the ear (called tinnitus)
  • Intermittent hearing loss
  • A feeling of pressure or fullness in the affected ear
  • Vertigo (a sensation that the person or the things around him are spinning)
  • Most often affects those in the 40-50 age range

No exact cause of Meniere’s has been discovered, although many researchers believe it is caused by a large amount of fluid in the inner ear. To see why this is the case, let’s discuss how the ear works. The inner ear, which is the part closest to the brain, receives vibrations (sound) and sends these to the brain. This is done by hair-like sensors that respond to the fluid flowing through the ear. The right amount of pressure and chemical compounds must make up these fluids so that the inner ear responds properly to them. This helps the body remain in balance also. If the fluid is disrupted, symptoms of Meniere’s may be the end result.

Some other possible reasons for symptoms Meniere’s, such as vertigo, are:

  • Migraine headaches
  • Bacterial or viral infections
  • Injury to the head or neck
  • Abnormal immune system response
  • Improper drainage of fluid in the ear
  • Allergies
  • Genetic predisposition

Why Upper Cervical Chiropractic Can Help Meniere’s Disease

The examination begins with taking a thorough look at the patient’s neck. This is done with specialized x-rays to help to determine exactly where the misalignment is located. A misalignment in this area of the neck can be as small as ¼ of a millimeter and still cause major problems throughout the body. This is due to the fact that a misalignment places undue pressure on the brainstem and hinders the brain and body from communicating properly. After use of a gentle adjustment to realign the bones, the body can begin healing itself with its natural restorative powers. Many patients report relief of Meniere’s symptoms in only a few adjustments.
