If you have been too familiar with the feeling of being seasick for no apparent reason, then you may have Meniere’s disease. Seeking out the aid of a California vertigo chiropractor based in Redwood City would surely benefit your condition.
Meniere’s disease is a condition that occurs due to the buildup of excessive endolymph fluid in the inner ear. It often afflicts adults between the ages of 40 to 50. Some of its classic signs and symptoms are:
Meniere’s is a rare condition that only 0.2 percent of the US population has it, according to the American Hearing Research Foundation.
Meniere’s commonly only disturbs one ear and may come with migraines or headaches. Past studies recognize that Meniere’s has its connection to a glitch in the vestibular system and central nervous system. It is quite a challenging condition to care for as there has no FDA-approved medication for it until now.
A recent study showed that inflammation might have a connection to the onset of Meniere’s disease. If swelling in the ear exists, the ear fluid may not drain properly, causing symptoms of Meniere’s disease. Doctors introduced a steroid drug to be injected into the ear to reduce the inflammation. It yielded positive results, but only temporarily.
Upper cervical chiropractic care is the way to go for those patients seeking lasting relief from Meniere’s disease. As a California vertigo chiropractor based in Redwood City, my practice uses precise and gentle techniques, to make sure the C1 and C2 vertebrae are in their proper alignments.
Their misalignment can cause issues within the central nervous system (CNS). For one, it can cause the improper draining of the fluid in the Eustachian tube, causing inflammation and buildup of fluid in the inner ear. Once corrections of the misalignment become successful, the normal function of the CNS can resume. Therefore, you may experience a reduction in your symptoms of Meniere’s disease.Contact us to inquire about upper cervical chiropractic care.
