Publication Type Case Report

Objective: To report on and discuss the effects of upper cervical chiropractic care utilized on a 45-year-old male patient suffering from tinnitus and vertigo associated with Meniere’s disease.

Clinical Features: The patient is a 45-year-old male who first showed signs and symptoms of Meniere’s disease 12 years ago, with an official diagnosis being made 5 years ago. The patient presented into the doctor’s office with ringing and fullness in his ears, hearing loss, vertigo, and a significant decline in his posture and balance. The initial visit to the office was three years after the diagnosis was made.

Interventions & Outcomes: A case history and chiropractic examination were performed first, which determined that the patient had a subluxation at the C1 vertebrae. Chiropractic care was given to the patient following the protocol of the National Upper Cervical Chiropractic Association (NUCCA). The patient had a total of 34 and during each visit the patient was evaluated for vertebral subluxation and was adjusted a total of 22 times. At the end of care the patient claimed his quality of life improved greatly and his most serious issues, vertigo and hearing loss, had been eliminated entirely.

Conclusion: The results of this case strongly suggest that patient’s suffering from symptoms of Meniere’s disease may benefit from upper cervical adjustments.
