Medication-Free Meniere’s Treatment in Delray Beach, FL

What is Meniere’s disease? It is a condition involving the inner ear that is most frequently associated with vertigo. Vertigo can come on quickly, in under a minute, but it may take an hour or so for the spinning to stop. Individuals with Meniere’s often suffer from a feeling of fullness in the ear as well as hearing loss in one ear. Some symptoms may last for an entire day such as nausea, growing pale, and sweating. According to the NIH, approximately 615,000 in the US have Meniere’s disease. This condition typically presents between the ages of 20 and 50, but children are not immune.

Standard Meniere’s Treatment Options

The medical industry views Meniere’s disease as a chronic health condition, and there is no recognized cure. Medications are usually prescribed to help a patient cope with the various symptoms. For example, you may be given an anti-nausea medication or something for motion sickness. However, medication addresses the symptoms and not the underlying cause of Meniere’s.

Treating a Potential Cause

Since Meniere’s generally affects the inner ear, few look at the upper cervical spine as having any bearing on Meniere’s. However, the C1 and C2 vertebrae are positioned at the brainstem, making this a vital part of the body when it comes to proper central nervous system function. A misalignment of the upper neck can place pressure on the brainstem and create the symptoms of Meniere’s disease.

Because of this, Delray Beach residents suffering from Meniere’s should have an upper neck examination performed by Dr. Elan Schrier. Dr. Schrier can diagnose and correct upper cervical misalignments that may be the cause of many of your symptoms. As a result, you may see a complete resolution of symptoms rather than needing to cover them up with medication.
