- Vertigo – a spinning sensation
- Tinnitus – ringing in the ears
- A feeling of fullness in the affected ear
- Temporary hearing loss that may become permanent if not cared for properly
Vertigo can arise suddenly and be intense. While this is happening, one may become pale, sweaty, and nauseous. These symptoms can last for a few days after the attack.
Approximately 615,000 people in America have Meniere’s. Meniere’s is most likely to occur between the ages of 40 and 60. However, it can affect any age group.
Helping people cope with Meniere’s continues to puzzle doctors. They often recommend prescription or over-the-counter medications that treat motion sickness and nausea. These medications may offer temporary help, but Meniere’s symptoms are likely to continue if the root cause is not addressed. It is also important to remember that medications come with unwanted and dangerous side effects.

Alleviating Meniere’s Disease Through Proper Spinal Alignment
Upper cervical chiropractors, such as those working in our practice, have seen much success in helping patients control the symptoms of Meniere’s. This is because the reason for Meniere’s often has to do with a misalignment in the upper neck vertebrae. The vertebrae that lie in this area protect the delicate brainstem and spinal cord. The body and spine rely on the central nervous system to maintain health throughout the body. A misalignment in this area puts stress on the brainstem and creates a number of health problems, including the symptoms associated with Meniere’s.
At 1st Place Chiropractic, we use imaging technology to find the tiniest of misalignments that may be causing problems. Then, using a very gentle method, we help the bones move back into proper alignment. This is often all that is needed to restore communication throughout the body and see a reduction in the symptoms of Meniere’s disease.
