If you are someone who has been diagnosed with Meniere’s disease, you understand how debilitating it can be. It affects a person’s vision and balance. It can even cause nausea and potential hearing loss. Up to 5 million of those living in the USA are troubled with Meniere’s to some degree.
The Cause of Meniere’s
Unfortunately, the exact cause is still unknown. Much research is being done, and this has lead to a new understanding of how Meniere’s starts. Neurosurgeons are finding a connection between improper blood flow to the brain and Meniere’s. Why is this so important? Blood flow delivers oxygen to the brain and removes metabolic waste. If this is not happening with the right amount of flow, the whole body can be affected negatively. Why does this happen?

In some cases, a misalignment in the upper neck can impair the flow of blood to the brain by putting undue pressure on the spinal cord. A way to correct this is to seek the care of an upper cervical chiropractor, such as Dr. Craig Lapenski of Graham, Washington. Dr. Lapenski specializes in the alignment of the Atlas (C1 vertebra). There is much research that supports the fact that when the C1 is out of proper alignment it negatively affects the nervous system, the brain, and any arteries or veins coming from the cervical spine.
Upper cervical chiropractors use special tests and x-rays to find out whether or not the C1 is misaligned. If so, they will begin to correct it by means of gentle, effective adjustments. A study of 139 patients suffering from Meniere’s disease that received care from an upper cervical chiropractor revealed that all of them had some improvement in symptoms with some having their symptoms go away altogether. By realigning the Atlas bone, blood flow increases and brain function improves. Why not call Dr. Lapenski today and take the first step in healing your Meniere’s disease? You will not be sorry you did.
