Dizziness, hearing loss, intense pressure in your ears, a ringing sound that never seems to go away — if you struggle with Meniere’s disease, you are well-acquainted with these and many other side effects of this serious inner ear disorder. Upper cervical care may be able to provide you with incredible relief from your symptoms while giving you the ability to function normally.
If you’re looking for chiropractors who can ease your tinnitus and Meniere’s disease symptoms, look no further than Upper Cervical Chiropractic of New York. Our White Plains chiropractic practice specializes in an advanced spinal correction technique called NUCCA, which can be used to address the aggravating and often debilitating side effects of Meniere’s disease.
What Is Meniere’s Disease?
Meniere’s disease is a progressive inner ear disorder that causes sudden, often disabling symptoms. Recurring attacks can include:
- Vertigo: A sensation that feels like you’re moving or the world is whirling around you even when standing still.
- Severe dizziness: This unsteady symptom is often accompanied by nausea or vomiting.
- Tinnitus: A constant or intermittent ringing or roaring sound in the ears.
- Ear pressure: This symptom can make your ear feel full or congested.
- Hearing loss: Usually only in one ear, hearing loss tends to fluctuate but can worsen over the years.
No one knows why people develop Meniere’s disease. However, some experts now believe that spinal trauma experienced by some patients could play a role in this inner ear disorder. Whether a bump on the head or whiplash from a car accident or sports injury, traumatic spinal injuries have been known to cause vertigo, tinnitus, and even Meniere’s disease. Symptoms may appear immediately, or they may develop months or even years after trauma occurs.
What Is NUCCA?There is no cure for Meniere’s disease, and treatments range from medication to surgery to talk therapy to help you cope with the unexpected nature of attacks. However, upper cervical care can address the spinal trauma that sometimes leads to Meniere’s disease. At UCC of New York, our practice specializes in the NUCCA technique. Developed and promoted by the National Upper Cervical Chiropractic Association, the NUCCA procedure does more than fix neck, back, and muscle pain. By bringing the Atlas vertebra into proper alignment, our highly trained chiropractor can restore nerve flow so that the brain can properly communicate with the rest of the body. This brings your body into balance, allowing the nervous system to function optimally so your body can heal naturally.
Upper Cervical Care for Meniere’s Disease Patients
A misaligned upper cervical spine may be what’s triggering your vertigo and other Meniere’s symptoms. Vertebral misalignments can cause nerve irritation to the upper neck and inner ear. Our chiropractor will assess whether spinal trauma is present and whether your inner ear disorder may benefit from the NUCCA technique.
We use state-of-the-art diagnostic technology to study your upper neck region and locate any misalignment of the vertebrae for possible irritation. If your vertebrae are misaligned, our NUCCA specialist uses precise yet gentle adjustments to correct the issue. Follow-up imaging scans ensure your spinal correction was successful.
