Meniere’s disease describes a set of symptoms including vertigo, hearing loss, tinnitus (ringing sound in the ear), and a sensation of fullness in the ear. It typically relates to function of the inner ear and some of the common treatments for it include dietary changes, anti-vertigo medications, injections and surgery.
One of the factors that is not commonly addressed in the medical treatment of Meniere’s is the correlation with the upper cervical spine. When the upper cervical spine is out of alignment it can effect head tilt, the brains perception of movement and position, cerebral blood flow and spinal fluid flow, innervation to the inner ear and other cranial structures. This is a crucial component to inner ear function.
