Peer Review Yes
Publication Type Case Report

Objective: To report on multisystem health changes of a patient diagnosed with Meniere’s disease while under a long term chiropractic care program utilizing Network Spinal Analysis (NSA).

Clinical Features: A 56 year old white male presented to a chiropractic clinic with a complaint of bilateral carpal tunnel symptoms, numbness in both feet after sitting, and pain and fullness in the left ear. The left ear pain and fullness was also accompanied by dizziness and progressive hearing loss experienced over the past twenty years. Physical examination revealed significant structural and neurological imbalances. Spinal subluxations were identified at multiple levels of the spine. The patient had been managing his symptoms with ten different medications prescribed for various complaints including: blood pressure, anxiety, muscle spasms and fluid retention. Auditory evaluations had shown progressive degeneration of hearing in his left ear, along the whole range of frequencies tested.

Intervention and Outcomes: The patient received NSA care, basic workshop style education about stress, simple range of motion exercises, and beginning Somato-Respiratory Integration exercises. The first re-evaluation showed positive changes in symptomatology and lifestyle. His auditory exam four months from the start of care showed improvements especially with lower frequencies. These changes in hearing continued to improve, and then were maintained over the course of treatment.

Conclusions: In this case, an individual diagnosed with Meniere’s disease had improved hearing as well as reduction of other symptoms while enrolled in an NSA care program.
