Chiropractic Treatment for Meniere's Disease
Many wonders if Chiropractic treatment for Meniere’s disease can be successful. In 2015 a landmark study published by Dr. Michael Burcon showed 300 consecutive cases of Ménière's disease with a 98 percent recovery rate using Blair's upper cervical chiropractic technique.
Unlike the twisting, popping, and pulling form of chiropractic care, the Blair technique utilizes a three-d X-ray to precisely determine how the upper cervical spine misaligned and then uses this information to precisely correct the atlas or axis back into its normal range of motion. Dr. Burcon opines that the upper cervical misalignment is the CAUSE OF Ménière's disease.
After 16 years and several hundred Ménière's disease patients corrected in our Wasco based Blair upper cervical health care office we agree with Dr. Burcon that the upper cervical subluxation complex is at the ROOT of Ménière's diseases development and cause. Chiropractic treatment for Ménière's disease has been proven to be effective for the large majority of sufferers!
Mainstream medicine is fantastic at diagnoses, however, it fails miserably at elucidating Ménière's disease's cause and therefore has little to offer in the form of a cure. Medicines' goal is the treatment of symptoms not the location of the cause.
Blair Upper Cervical doctors are specially trained to locate the underlying cause of why the body malfunctions and then aim at restoring normal biomechanics to the upper cervical spine to liberate normal brain stem and nervous system function.
By restoring motion and normalizing nervous system function, upper cervical chiropractic treatment for Ménière's disease can be highly successful.
Suffering in Silence
Those who suffer from Ménière's disease can suffer immensely and unfortunately oftentimes are dismissed by mainstream doctors and patients are often sent home with medication that treats the symptoms and does not address the cause.
While there are clear objective signs that the medical doctor can use to diagnose Ménière's Disease, finding the underlying cause is NOT IN THEIR WHEELHOUSE.
Upper Cervical Offices are often called the office of last resort. Patients have been suffering in silence for years, are often dismissed by the mainstream as crazy and most feel completely disenfranchised and have lost most hope for recovery.
When they hear about the Blair Upper Cervical Procedure their hope can be restored because the principle that the body can heal itself as long as there is no interference to its functioning makes sense. It is then up to the Blair Doctor to deliver the result with precision chiropractic treatment for Meniere's Disease.
Once a patient is diagnosed with Meniere's Disease they are given a course of care that treats the effects not the cause. Most Ménière's patients are prescribed Antivert or meclizine treat episodes of dizziness.
Steroids are often given to treat the Eustachian tube dysfunction (inflammation of the Eustachian tube) and when all else fails endolymphatic shunt surgery and gentamicin treatments are often administered.
Often the result of these drastic interventions is deafness and most still suffer from symptoms and do not have a resolution. Notice that ALL of these procedures are treating symptoms and NOT asking the question of what is the cause and how do we remove it! In this article, we would like to discuss how you can help your body function better naturally.
When the higher function is attained through proper living and removing nervous system interference your body has its best chance to heal through the underlying cause of ill health. Treating symptoms is a losing battle. Restoring health and function is where health meets reality.
What is Health and Where Does it Come From? - Chiropractic Treatment for Meniere’s Disease
Health is a state of optimum function. We have been sold on the idea that health is the absence of symptoms. This is categorically not true. The body is a dynamic living system that is constantly adapting to external events in life. Symptoms are not always a sign of dysfunction.
Sometimes they are there to protect us and sometimes they are
there because the body is ridding itself of toxicity, viruses, and
If we sprain an ankle we feel pain.
Pain keeps us from putting weight on injured tissue. Taking pain-killing medication may allow us to walk on the ankle but will cause further damage because we have erased the body's warning system.
Symptoms are oftentimes a beneficial warming system to allow our body to heal without out further damage.
When we get the flu we get a fever, followed by a cold. Fever is nature's way of killing a virus. The cold is the body's way of expelling built-up toxicity in the body. Symptoms often are the body re-adapting, cleansing, and repairing.
The last thing we want to do is stop the natural process. Unfortunately, we have been taught to suppress symptoms and work against the body's wisdom instead of working with it.
The point of these two stories is to highlight that not all symptoms are bad. Some are adaptive. Generally speaking, it is better to work with the body than against it.
The body is intelligent and wonderfully designed. However, when someone is chronically ill it is usually the result of interference that is disrupting normal function. Instead of suppressing symptoms, the wise approach is restoring normal function. Let's remove the cause!
In the case of Ménière's Disease, instead of using toxic medications that suppress symptoms the Blair Upper Cervical Chiropractor's goal is to find where you have a structural misalignment in the upper cervical spine that is interfering with normal nervous system function.
The Blair doctor recognizes that ill health isn't caused by a deficiency in medication but rather a deficiency in function. Since the nervous system is the controlling factor in all body systems it makes sense to make sure it's working optimally when trying to recover health.
Chiropractic treatment for Meniere’s disease is simple and
one-fold. Find the interference, correct it, and then monitor the
patient overtime to make sure it stays corrected. When the nervous
system is functioning optimally it gives the body the chance to do
the healing over time.
What Does a Blair Upper Cervical Chiropractor Do? - Chiropractic Treatment for Meniere’s Disease
Blair Upper Cervical doctors are specially trained to locate spinal misalignments in the upper cervical spine and correct them. Spinal misalignment is located by running a battery of neurological tests that locate the spinal segments that have been injured and misaligned by a prior neck injury.
Once located, precision imaging in the form of digital x-ray or cone-beam computed tomography (Cbct) is used to precisely determine which joint has misaligned and the angulation of the misaligned joint.
Each person’s anatomy is different and therefore imaging is used to uncover the blueprint to be used to correct each patient’s individual misalignment pattern. Once this information is gleaned, a gentle, light correction is made without twisting, popping, or pulling.
The patient is then monitored overtime to ensure that the correction is holding. If the testing indicates the need for another correction, then it is performed. However, the goal of Blair Upper Cervical Care is for the patient to stay in “adjustment”.
It isn’t the correction that produces healing. It is the removal of nerve irritation and the adjustment “holding” in its normal position that allows the body to function better and proceed through a healing process. This is how Blair Chiropractic treatment for Ménière's Disease can aid your body in healing itself.
If you are suffering from Meniere's Disease or any other chronic degenerative disease give upper cervical care a chance. You will be glad you did. Chiropractic treatment for Meniere's disease is safe, gentle, and effective!
