Vertigo causes you to feel as if you or the things around you are spinning. Sometimes it is from a blow to the head, standing up too quickly, or the onset of a condition referred to as Meniere’s disease. Let’s take a closer look at this condition and where you can find help if you are suffering from it.

Help for Vertigo Due to Meniere’s
Meniere’s induced vertigo is not something you have to learn to live with. The good news is that there is an alternative, natural care that has proven to be effective for many Meniere’s patients. Here at Thrive Chiropractic in Waynesville, OH, we can help.
We have seen a strong connection between vertigo and a misalignment in the bones of the upper cervical spine, especially the C1 and C2 vertebrae. This is because the brainstem lies in the same location as these bones. In fact, the C1 and C2 have the job of protecting the brainstem. However, if an accident or injury causes them to move out alignment, they can actually put pressure on the brainstem, making it send improper signals to the brain about where the body is located. The end result can be Meniere’s disease and vertigo.
We use a method that is both gentle and precise to realign the bones. We are not required to pop or crack the spine to get results. Many see their vertigo improve in as little as one to two visits.
