Objective: Multiple factors and several common triggers contribute to Meniere’s disease (MD), but the hypothesis of this study is related to one cause: an upper cervical subluxation complex (UCSC), the result of whiplash trauma, caused by vehicular accident or blow to head.

Methods: UCSC pattern was established utilizing Tytron thermography, Thompson cervical syndrome and modified Prill leg length inequality tests, determining when and where to adjust. Upper cervical adjustment listings were obtained by Blair x-ray analysis. Ninety percent of patients had atlas listings of posterior and inferior on the opposite side of the involved ear. When patients were in pattern, Palmer toggle recoil and/or Pierce Results knife-edge adjustments were performed.

Results: Vertigo intensity rated by 300 patients on a scale of 0 to 10, with 10 being the worst imaginable. Prior to treatment mean score was 8.5, six weeks post treatment average was down to 3.0, after one year 2.0, two years 1.4, three years 0.9, four, five and six years 0.8, an improvement of over 90%. Ninety seven percent claimed a dramatic improvement in vertigo. Three percent had side effect of headache.

Conclusion: Patients with a history of both vertigo and trauma should be referred to an upper cervical specific chiropractor for examination.
