Information about Meniere’s disease published in 2014 gave some deeper insight into the condition and who are often afflicted with it. Meniere’s disease is a problem within the inner ear and has the following symptoms:
Meniere’s is non-fatal and, therefore, seems to get little attention in the scientific community. However, as many as 1 in every 1000 people suffer from this condition, and it does merit attention. Findingds from the above-mentioned study are as follows:
Interestingly, lead researcher, Dr. Jessica Tyrrell, noted that a dysfunction in the immune system plays a vital role in the start of the condition and includes other factors such as the nervous system. What can cause these systems to malfunction?
If the C1 or C2 vertebra has moved out of proper alignment due to a fall, a car accident, or other trauma to the head or neck, the immune system may stop working at its optimum. This has to do with the fact that the brainstem is located in the same area as these bones. When they move out of alignment, they place stress or pressure on the brainstem – part of the central nervous system. This causes the sending of distorted signals to and from the brain and body, potentially leading to such conditions as Meniere’s disease.
Upper cervical chiropractors use a gentle method to assist the bones to move back into place naturally. When this is accomplished, the body can begin to work at its peak, and this is often all that is needed to see a decrease Meniere’s symptoms.
