Meniere’s disease is a condition of the inner ear that is accompanied by the following symptoms:
What’s Behind Meniere’s Disease?
The cause of Meniere’s has not been clearly defined, but there is a strong link between it and a misalignment of the upper neck vertebrae. The top two vertebrae are more susceptible to misalignment due to their range of motion. This misalignment can irritate the cranial nerve that controls balance and hearing, leading to pressure and swelling of the auditory tube and/or nerve itself.
A clinical study was done on 139 patients with Meniere’s disease, all of whom reported having previous head or neck trauma due mostly to vehicle accidents. After receiving care from an upper cervical chiropractor, they saw a dramatic improvement in their vertigo and Meniere’s disease symptoms. Some had Meniere’s go away entirely.
At Upper Cervical Health Center—Boise, we have seen similar results. If a patient has an upper cervical misalignment the communication between the brain and body is commonly interfered with disrupting its ability to communicate. This wreaks havoc on the entire body creating all kinds of health-related problems, including Meniere’s disease. Once corrected, the body begins to heal itself and communicate optimally once again. Many patients with Meniere’s disease have thus been helped by receiving upper cervical care.
