There are a number of ways that doctors go after this condition, although you will notice that most of the treatment options address particular symptoms rather than the underlying cause of the condition. This is a common practice when the underlying cause of a particular syndrome is not fully understood.
Many patients are finding hope thanks to a successful study performed on 300 patients who were suffering from Meniere’s and also had an upper cervical misalignment. 97% of patients in the study experienced a 90% improvement in vertigo as well as significant improvement in other symptoms after seeking upper cervical chiropractic care. This gentle subspecialty of chiropractic involves low force adjustments to the top two bones in the spine. Since they are located at the base of the skull between the ears, a misalignment can have a powerful effect on fluid drainage and may lead to the symptoms noted above.
If you are suffering from Meniere’s disease, especially if you have a history of head or neck trauma, it makes sense to have your neck examined by an upper cervical chiropractor. If a misalignment exists, you may have just found a natural way to receive significant relief. Get started by scheduling a consultation today with a practitioner near you.
