Meniere’s disease can be very frustrating for those who are trying to cope with it. It negatively impacts the vestibular system that has the job of letting the brain know where the body is located in its environment and, in turn, maintaining one’s balance. The general age range that is affected by Meniere’s is between 20 and 50, with both males and females affected equally. What symptoms accompany Meniere’s disease?
- A feeling of fullness in the affected ear
- Temporary hearing loss that may become permanent if not cared for
- Feeling off balance
- A spinning sensation referred to as vertigo
- Ringing in the ears also called tinnitus
- Nausea and vomiting
Options to care for Meniere’s disease are numerous and varied because it is so hard to diagnose. Some doctors may recommend simply changing a person’s diet, while others may recommend prescription medication. In severe cases, surgery may even be suggested. This leaves patients not sure where to turn. Many are seeking natural, safe, non-invasive options that really work. Thankfully, there is an area of care that is seeing much success in helping Meniere’s patients.

How Upper Cervical Chiropractic Helps Meniere’s Disease
The underlying cause of Meniere’s disease can often be traced back to a misalignment in the upper neck area, particularly the C1 and C2 vertebrae. Upper cervical chiropractors are specifically trained to find these small misalignments and to work with patients to correct them. Using the latest technology and techniques, we can pinpoint the subluxation and then tailor care to each individual patient, only providing an adjustment when needed.
A study performed in 2010 observed 139 Meniere’s patients after they received an adjustment from an upper cervical chiropractor. Out of these, 136 reported a great improvement in their symptoms. Some saw their Meniere’s go away completely. Many other patients report similar results.
