Meniere’s disease and the accompanying vertigo have become a way of life for many. When a person has Meniere’s, vertigo attacks can last a full day and even be complicated by other symptoms like nausea and vomiting.
Treatments for Meniere’s disease primarily focus on mitigating the symptoms and reducing the severity of episodes. These treatments include:
- Inner ear injections
- Anti-vertigo medications
- A water pill (diuretic)
There are also several lifestyle changes that can affect Meniere’s. These include
- Quitting smoking
- Reducing intake of alcohol, salt, and caffeine
- Other dietary changes
The main problem with all of these treatments is that none of them actually fix the underlying problem.

Treating Meniere’s Disease at its Source
Dr. Elan Schrier of Delray Beach, Florida is taking a different approach to Meniere’s and vertigo. Dr. Schrier is an upper cervical chiropractor, and uses gentle and specific methods to reduce to eliminate Meniere’s symptoms in patients with upper neck misalignments.
The C1 and C2 vertebrae, if misaligned, can affect blood flow to the brain. This is considered a major factor that contributes to Meniere’s disease. By correcting any such misalignments, the body can be giving the opportunity to repair itself.
Treating Meniere’s as early as possible is important because, in its advanced stages, Meniere’s can lead to permanent hearing loss. If you or a loved one are affected by this debilitating condition, having an upper cervical chiropractor examine your neck will allow you to learn if an adjustment may help your situation. This is a natural solution that focuses on the underlying problem instead of simply covering up the symptoms.
