  Title Meniere’s disease symptomatology resolution with specific upper cervical care [case report]
Journal J Upper Cervical Chiropr Res. 2012 Winter;2012(1):31-39
Peer Review Yes
Publication Type Case Report

Objective: To describe the outcomes of a patient with Meniere’s disease undergoing upper cervical chiropractic care.

Clinical Features: A 52 year old male presented to the office with a previous diagnosis of Meniere’s disease and associated symptoms of tinnitus, sensations of fullness in the left ear, vertigo, tension headaches, right mid-back and scapular pain along with other musculoskeletal complaints.

Interventions and Outcomes: The patient received orthogonal-based, specific upper cervical chiropractic care based on the National Upper Cervical Chiropractic Association (NUCCA) technique protocol. After the first adjustment, the patient noted a minor reduction in tinnitus. After 4 adjustments and 5 weeks of care his subjective feedback demonstrated an improvement of about 60% and a significant reduction of musculoskeletal complaints.

Conclusions: The positive response observed in this case suggests that tinnitus, vertigo, auricular pressure, migraine tension headaches and Meniere’s may be linked to atlas subluxation. The need for further investigation of the connection between atlanto-occipital and atlanto-axial vertebral subluxations and cranial nerve dysfunction is indicated.

Author Keywords: Upper Cervical, subluxation, orthogonal, NUCCA, Grostic, dentate, denticulate, vestibular, vestibulocochlear, cord distortion, chiropractic, Meniere's Disease.
