  Title Resolution of Meniere's disease in a 68-year-old female following upper cervical chiropractic to reduce atlas subluxation using Orthospinology technique: A case study and review of literature [case report; review]

Peer Review Yes
Publication Type Case Report

Objective: To document and describe the positive health outcomes achieved by a patient with Meniere’s Disease (MD) while undergoing chiropractic care.

Clinical Feature: A 68-year-old female presented to a private chiropractic office with a diagnosis of Meniere’s Disease and an eight-year history of associated symptomatology including vertigo, roaring tinnitus, and vomiting that progressively worsened.  Previous chiropractic and nutritional care were unremarkable at achieving results.  Evaluation using Orthospinology technique revealed the presence of an atlas subluxation complex.

Intervention and Outcome: The patient underwent upper cervical chiropractic care using Orthospinology technique to reduce her atlas subluxation.  10 pre-calculated vectored adjustments were administered to her atlas vertebra over the course of 13 months.  After the 5th month of care, the patient’s ENT confirmed that she was no longer expressing MD symptomatology.  The patient’s symptomatology was greatly improved as she has had only one occurrence of minor dizziness since the start of care and a complete cessation of vertigo, roaring tinnitus, and vomiting.    

Conclusions: The improvement in the patient’s Meniere’s Disease symptomatology while solely undergoing upper cervical care to reduce her atlas subluxation suggests that MD symptomatology may be related to the atlas subluxation.  The need for additional studies is warranted.
