Vertigo and Meniere’s Disease

Staying with the theme of dizziness and vertigo.  I wanted to share a paper on Meniere’s Disease:

Burcon MT.  Upper Cervical Protocol for Ten Meniere’s Patients.  Ninth Annual Vertebral Subluxation Research Conference, October 13-14, 2001, Spartanburg, SC.  After presentation, it was published in the Journal of Vertebral Subluxation Research, on June 2, 2008, pp 1-8.

Meniere’s is a terrible condition.  Vertigo sets in suddenly and lasts up to 24 hours.  In addition to the vertigo there is nystagmus, tinnitus, brain fog, headaches, neck stiffness, sinus pain, and fatigue.  If the symptoms continue to recur despite lifestyle changes and medications, there are surgeries.  The surgeries are less than 60% effective.  The one that does “work,” a labyrinthectomy, causes deafness in that ear.

This paper reports 9 case studies in which the patients received upper cervical chiropractic care.  In all cases the correction of the upper cervical subluxation relieved symptoms!
