Meniere’s Disease

Now and then I want to share case studies done on real patients – just like you. Vertigo and diagnosed Meniere’s disease can be helped by chiropractic care. Call our office at 507-775-2711 for an appointment.

Meniere’s disease defined: (U. S. National Library of Medicine Website) “Meniere’s disease is an inner ear disorder that affects balance and hearing.”

The case study (below) authors add that “Menieres disease causes bouts of vertigo or severe imbalance; usually unilateral hearing loss, or distorted hearing; buzzing or tinnitus in the ear; sometimes an associated sensation of fullness in the ear.”

Some of my patients experience vertigo so serious that it leads to vomiting and falling down. Their ability to walk, drive, enjoy life or work is hindered. When not associated with a chronic illness, they recover with chiropractic care.

The following is taken directly from the March 29, 2012 Journal of Upper Cervical Chiropractic:

Objective: To describe the outcomes of a patient with Meniere’s disease undergoing upper cervical chiropractic care.

Clinical Features: A 52-year-old  male presented to the office with a previous diagnosis of Meniere’s disease and associated symptoms of tinnitus, sensations of fullness in the left ear, vertigo, tension headaches, right mid-back and scapular pain along with other musculoskeletal complaints.

Interventions and Outcomes: The patient received orthogonal-based, specific upper cervical chiropractic care based on the National Upper Cervical Chiropractic Association (NUCCA) technique protocol. After the first adjustment, the patient noted a minor reduction in tinnitus. After 4 adjustments and five weeks of care, his subjective feedback demonstrated an improvement of about 60% and a significant reduction of musculoskeletal complaints.

Conclusions: The positive response observed in this case suggests that tinnitus, vertigo, auricular pressure, migraine tension headaches and Meniere’s may be linked to atlas subluxation. The need for further investigation of the connection between atlanto-occipital and atlanto-axial vertebral subluxations and cranial nerve dysfunction is indicated.
