Natural Relief of Meniere’s Disease in San Diego

There are very few things that can make living in San Diego unpleasant. Between 70 miles of beach and over 260 days of sunshine. Unless you suffer from Menieres Disease, which can make the sound of ocean waves deafening and any bright light agonizing.

Menieres Disease equally affects men and women typically from the ages of 20-50 years old. The condition is related to the fluid of the inner ear which is responsible for balance and proprioception (the body’s orientation of where it is in space). Symptoms of menieres include:

  • Sensation of fullness in the ears
  • Tinnitus
  • Hearing loss
  • Vertigo
  • Nausea
  • Vomiting

Menieres Disease is difficult to diagnose and is even harder to effectively treat. Treatments may vary from dietary changes to invasive surgery, and have limited effectiveness. Natural relief of Menieres disease has been shown through upper cervical chiropractic.

There is a relationship between Menieres Disease and the upper neck/upper cervical spine. Misalignment (subluxation) of the C0/Occipit, C1/Atlas, and C2/Axis bones may be a causative factor in Menieres symptoms. In a research study of 139 patients with medically diagnosed Menieres disease, 136 experienced reduction and/or of symptoms after one or two upper cervical adjustments1 . The same technique utilized in this study gives hope for natural relief of Menieres Disease in San Diego at San Diego Integrative Spine Center.

The specialized upper cervical procedure uses tests to detect misalignment (subluxation) in the upper neck. If it is present specific x-rays are taken to measure the exact degree of misalignment and tailor the perfect adjustment. Adjustments are delivered only as needed and when the neck is properly aligned the body can regain it’s ability to balance properly.

NUCCA Chiropractic Care

What is NUCCA
The National Upper Cervical Chiropractic Association (NUCCA) is an organization of Doctors of Chiropractic dedicated to patient care, education and research.

Spinal health care using the NUCCA procedures focuses on detecting and correcting a small misalignment in the upper neck area. Gentle, non-invasive adjustments don’t require any turning, twisting or popping.

Your upper cervical spine (neck) area influences all areas of your body. Injury or chronic misalignments can cause headaches, migraines, neck pain, low back pain, weakness and more.

The NUCCA technique is currently offered by less than 1% of all the Doctors of Chiropractic.

Before the NUCCA procedure can be performed, I will sit down with you and discuss your history and symptoms. If I determine that NUCCA can help, a thorough examination and x-rays will be done. A complete report of your findings and treatment options will be discussed. 

First adjustment
Precision x-rays are taken of the spine before any treatment begins. The adjustment is performed with the patient lying on their side and the doctor applying a very light pressure behind the earlobe. A full demonstration can be seen on the video above.

The NUCCA procedure can be summed up with 5 major distinctions as compared to traditional Chiropractic:

  • Gentle adjustment to the neck with no turning, twisting or popping.
  • Precision x-rays to measure before and after corrections.
  • Total body posture and balance improvement
  • Greater stability to the spine
  • Hold adjustments longer with fewer visits
