Traditional Treatment Methods for Meniere's Disease

Traditional Treatment Methods for Meniere's Disease

If you suffer from Meniere's disease, you know well the symptoms that accompany this rare condition vertigo, tinnitus, a full feeling in the affected ear, and temporary hearing loss. It often requires an ear, nose, and throat specialist to get an official diagnosis. Once Meniere's disease is diagnosed, there are numerous recommended treatments to care for the condition. Are they proving effective?

Meniere's Disease Options Fall Short

As with any health condition, doctors immediately turn to pharmaceuticals for answers. Unfortunately, these medicines only treat symptoms and do not actually relieve the condition. This locks a patient into a lifetime of pills, each with their own unique side effects.

One particular recommended medication is a diuretic. These pills make a person urinate more frequently, thereby reducing the amount of moisture in the body. The idea is to limit the amount of fluid that gets produced in the ear since ear pressure is the primary issue with Meniere's disease. A low salt diet also stops the body from retaining fluids.

While doctors don't really know why certain foods and habits make Meniere's symptoms worse, some triggers have been pinpointed. Therefore, dietary changes may be recommended. It is also a good idea to quit smoking.

Other forms of care include injections of antibiotics into the middle ear. This treatment option may increase the odds of hearing loss becoming permanent. There are also certain surgeries, one of which involves severing the vestibular nerve the nerve that relays messages to the brain about balance and location.

If most of those options sound nightmarish to you, I'd like to recommend an alternative form of care.

Upper Cervical Chiropractic Proves Beneficial

While most doctors will tell you that there is no scientific evidence to back up herbal remedies or acupuncture for Meniere's disease, numerous case studies reveal the efficacy of Sacramento, CA upper cervical chiropractic care.

In fact, Meniere's can be more directly linked to a lesion on the Eustachian tube formed by an upper cervical misalignment than to hydrops (excess ear fluid). This slow forming lesion can take a decade or more to cause symptoms. Therefore, it is important to list any head or neck trauma in your patient history, even if the injury is old enough for the average doctor to ignore.
