Meniere’s disease is a condition of the inner ear. It usually affects mainly those in their 40s and 50s. In the USA, around 600,000 people have Meniere’s, with 45,000 cases newly diagnosed each year. Common symptoms of Meniere’s includes:
- Tinnitus (ringing in the ears)
- Vertigo (a spinning sensation)
- Loss of hearing
- Balance problems
- Nausea and vomiting
Up until now, Meniere’s disease has been little understood. However, new information has just come out, according to the Tech Times, that points toward a possible way to help Meniere’s patients. A connection has been noted between Meniere’s disease and a reduction of blood flow to the brain.
The Colorado School of Medicine did research that clearly shows a link between loss of blood flow to the brain and conditions like Meniere’s disease, sleep apnea, and migraines. The theory is that if the vascular disease is treated and blood flow is increased, Meniere’s and similar conditions may resolve. If tissues in the body are not getting the right amount of blood, they can begin to send improper signals to the brain about where the body is located, causing the symptoms of Meniere’s disease.

Relief for Meniere’s Disease
It makes sense, after reading the above information, that in order to see some relief for Meniere’s disease, you would have to increase the amount of blood flow to the brain. How is this done? Well, we first need to understand what is slowing down the blood flow. A misalignment in the bones of the upper cervical spine is often to blame. If either the C1 or C2 is misaligned, it can cause a person to have neurological issues and hinder the flow of blood to the brain.
Here at Precision Chiropractic West in Des Moines, Iowa, we offer our patients a gentle and effective means to correct any misalignments they may have. We are not required to pop or crack the spine. Rather, the bones are encouraged to move into place naturally, restoring blood flow, and helping alleviate the symptoms of Meniere’s disease.
