What is Meniere’s disease? The symptoms are as follows:
- Ringing in the ears
- Loss of hearing
- Random bouts of dizziness
- Feeling of a loss of balance
It typically affects adults between the ages of 20 to 50. It can last 20 minutes or up to 4 hours. This can make life very difficult for those that suffer from Meniere’s disease.
This is not only hard on those suffering from Meniere’s but also those in the medical field trying to provide their patients with relief. Meniere’s affects two major functions of the body. (1) The inner ear fluid that assists in balance. (2) The Cranial nerve VIII (Vestibulocochlear nerve) that transmits information to the brain as to how the body is positioned.

Where Can You Get Help?
Unfortunately, there is no cure for Meniere’s disease or even a treatment that is totally successful. However, there has been some success found by upper cervical chiropractors, such as Dr. Craig Lapenski of Graham, Washington. Upper cervical chiropractors focus on misalignments in the first two bones in the neck, the Atlas (C1) and the Axis (C2). By examining closely these bones and adjusting them as needed, tailored to each individual person, patients have gotten some natural and very needed relief.
Recently, medical research has shown that there is a connection between the Atlas bone and Meniere’s disease. In addition, upper cervical chiropractors conducted their own research of those suffering from Meniere’s disease. They found that symptoms can be not only made better but in some cases totally alleviated when the misalignment in the Atlas bone is corrected. This can be accomplished with as little as one adjustment. This sounds like a great reason to call Dr. Lapenski to schedule an appointment for your assessment. Relief of your symptoms can be just one adjustment away!
