Specific Chiropractic of Boca Raton May Be Able To Help Meniere's Disease and Tinnitus Symptoms.
There have been recent studies that show Meniere's disease may be related to blood flow and neurological disturbances which lead to symptoms often medically diagnosed as Meniere's and that Chiropractic care, specifically Upper Cervical adjustments, may be able to alleviate the symptoms of Meniere's Disease.
While Specific Chiropractic does not directly treat Meniere's disease, our Boca Raton Doctors may help you increase your ability to overcome these symptoms by decreasing stress to your nervous system and improving overall function of balance, blood flow and thereby reducing the symptoms of tinnitus like hearing loss, nausea, vomiting, and headaches.
What is Meniere’s Disease?
Meniere’s Disease is a chronic disorder that causes an often debilitating ringing or buzzing in the inner ear that can lead to headaches and vertigo. The cause of Meniere's Disease, also known as Tinnitus, is unknown, though many scientists believe it is caused by changes in the fluid of the inner ear tubes. Other hypotheses include allergies, autoimmune diseases, and genetics.

The most common symptoms of Meniere's Disease/Tinnitus include:
Loss of hearing in one ear
