In out previous blog, we talked about the devastating effects of Meniere’s Disease on a person’s overall health, which include battles with Vertigo, Tinnitus, and hearing loss. We ended that blog by talking about a gentle and specific form of chiropractic that focuses on aligning the top two vertebrae in the spine (the upper cervical spine).
According to research conducted by Dr. Michael Burcon, who used upper cervical chiropractic to manage 139 people with Meniere’s Disease, 136 of those patients experienced a lessening of symptoms. The greatest reduction of symptoms experienced was that of Vertigo, which those patients reported had been reduced from an 8.5 to a 1.4, on a scale of one to 10 with 10 representing excruciating pain, after two years of care.
Out of all 139 patients, all of them had experienced a head or neck injury, most of which were the result of automobile accident, that led to a misalignment in their upper cervical spine. Those injuries resulted in whiplash, which reduced the quality of life for 139 people. The good news is thanks to upper cervical chiropractic, 97% of those patients experienced drastic healing.
While some continued to fight their battles, many of the 136 who once experienced severe bouts of Vertigo either only dealt with dizziness. And those who continued to deal with nausea no longer vomited. Those who continued to experience attacks of Vertigo did not suffer from it as often, it often did not last as long, it was not as intense, and the recovery time was often shorter.
Now, the good news is those who suffer from hearing loss, Tinnitus, or Vertigo can experience the same healing as those 136 patients, but they must make a simple choice. They must choose to do something about it by allowing an upper cervical chiropractor to examine their upper neck vertebrae. A misalignment of only ¼ of a millimeter in those two vertebrae can place enough pressure on the brainstem that it hinders the brain’s ability to communicate with the body. The good news is realigning those two bones in the upper neck can restore that communication process and allow the body to begin to heal itself.
