Atlas Orthogonal Chiropractic Helps Sufferers of Meniere’s Disease
Meniere’s disease is a debilitating condition that can cause falls, vertigo and partial hearing loss, among other symptoms. It affects as many as 5 million Americans.
Researchers and medical professionals have studied this complicated syndrome for years in an effort to identify the causes of it. Some neurosurgeons believe there is a connection between inhibited blood flow to the brain and Meniere’s disease. Other researchers continue to pin the cause on fluid in the ear and how upper cervical subluxations are related to ear tube problems. More recent research is revealing that Meniere’s disease patients are commonly whiplash injury victims.
This has led to a notable link between neck injuries and the onset of Meniere’s disease. As chiropractors know, upper neck misalignment can contribute to blood flow issues throughout the brain and body, including the ear. The vertebrae of the neck, particularly the top vertebrae known as C1 and the Atlas, play a key role in facilitating blood flow and cerebral spinal fluid to and from the brain. When vertebrae are misaligned, the vertebral arteries delivering blood to the brain are impacted.
Over 30% of the sensory information needed to balance the body comes from the joints and muscles of the head and neck. Upper cervical chiropractor have known for years the importance of the top two bones in the spine and the vital role they play in blood flow and CSF. Upright MRI’s have provided evidence of Cerebral Spinal Flow (CSF) obstruction when there is misalignment in the neck.
