Meniere’s disease is a disorder of the inner ear. Those with Meniere’s often wonder if there is anything that will help them?
A study was performed involving 139 patients who were suffering from Meniere’s disease. All of these patients reported some type of injury to their head or neck leading to damage of the upper cervical neck (the top two bones of the vertebrae). These patients were treated with upper cervical chiropractic adjustments. 136 of them responded well. After two years, they were able to report that Meniere’s symptoms went from 8.5 out of 10 down to 1.4 out of 10.
135 of them noticed a considerable improvement in their daily activities, such as their ability to work, drive, and have better relationships. Some continued to have dizziness, but it never progressed to the point of vertigo. Those that still had nausea reported that they never vomited. If they had an episode of Meniere’s occur, it was much less intense and did not last as long as previous episodes.
So, this should encourage any that are suffering from Meniere’s. There is hope.
Another interesting case is that of a man named Jack. Jack was diagnosed by an Ear, Nose, and Throat specialist who, in turn, led him to the option of surgery. He decided that was not right for him.
Jack’s medical history revealed that he was previously in a car accident at 45 mph. His symptoms did not show up for 14 years! He had vertigo, fullness in the ears, tinnitus, headaches, neck pain, one leg was shorter than the other, nausea, and vomiting. He sought out the care of an upper cervical chiropractor. After six weeks, his vertigo, nausea, vomiting, and feeling of fullness in the ears had all been reduced. He reported being vertigo free for one year.
