Vertigo is described often described as a spinning feeling although it referees to all false sensations of movement. It is one of the symptoms of Meniere’s disease, which affects up to 615,000 of those living in the USA, with thousands more being diagnosed each year. Meniere’s is also known for:
- Ringing in the ears (tinnitus)
- Hearing loss
- A feeling of fullness in the affected ear
This condition can have an extremely negative impact on quality of life and can dampen normal routines and daily plans, leading to emotional struggles on top of the physical toll of the condition.
Some trials are being performed involving injecting a gel-like substance into the ear containing steroids that are time-released over a 3-month period. This is an improvement over the current injection that has a very temporary benefit. However, the FDA has not yet approved this type of care to help Meniere’s disease. Ways to cope with vertigo are also quite limited, leading many to seek out a more natural means of finding relief for these conditions. But where is one to begin?

Vertigo, Meniere’s, and Upper Cervical Chiropractic Care
Here at our Walnut Creek, California practice, we use upper cervical chiropractic methods to gently encourage the C1 and C2 to move back into their proper positions. A study was conducted involving 139 patients who had Meniere’s disease and received care from an upper cervical chiropractor. They reported that vertigo severity improved from an 8.5 out of 10 to a mere 1.4.
As upper cervical chiropractors, we focus on realigning the top bones of the neck, so the central nervous system is able to perform at its peak. This can lead to remission of Meniere’s symptoms. If you suffer from vertigo, especially if you have a history of head or neck injury, gives us a call to schedule a no-obligation consultation.
