Inner Ear Disorders

Upper Cervical Chiropractic Care Relieves Inner Ear Disorders.

 

Inner ear disorders can be both physically and emotionally draining. They cause a range of symptoms from hearing loss and vertigo to tinnitus and imbalance that can have a profound effect on the life of an individual. The inner ear disorders are particularly dangerous because they can cause dizzy spells without any warning. Thus, the disorder can unexpectedly interrupt your routine and cause unwanted stress.

 

Upper cervical chiropractic is one of the most effective and easy ways to deal with ear disorders. It can reduce or even eliminate recurring flare-ups of dizziness enabling you to get full control over your body.

Learn About Inner Ear Disorders

The ear mainly has three parts: the outer ear, middle ear, and inner ear. All have their own roles and functions in human ear anatomy. Your innermost part of the ear is also called the labyrinth.

It has two main components – the bony labyrinth, which consists of the cochlea, vestibule, and three semicircular canals; and the membranous labyrinth, which is composed of the semicircular ducts, utricle and the saccule, and cochlear duct. Both these components collectively perform two special tasks: 1) To change sound waves to nerve impulses, and 2) To keep your body in equilibrium or balance.

If these components suffer any injury or trauma due to an accident or injury, it can lead to a disorder, such as Meniere’s disease, vertigo, and vestibular neuritis, or labyrinthitis. Some ear disorders are also a result of bacterial or viral infection. Whatever be the reason, any disorder affecting the inner ear can cause a range of devitalizing symptoms, including:

    • Dizziness or spinning sensation (vertigo)
    • Loss of balance
    • Nausea and vomiting
    • Partial or permanent hearing loss
    • Trouble concentrating
    • Ringing in the ear (tinnitus)

All these symptoms can prevent you from living your life with comfort and peace. Some ear disorders resolve on their own while others need specialized treatment. This typically involves medicines to relieve symptoms, such as nausea, vomiting, or dizziness associated. In some cases, surgery may be required.

The good news is that you can get relief from your inner ear disorders using an alternative treatment approach.

Can Upper Cervical Chiropractic Care Treat Treat Ear Infections?

Yes, most inner ear disorders can effectively be treated with upper cervical chiropractic treatment. One reason that is overlooked for ear conditions is spinal misalignment. If there is a misalignment in your upper spine or the two tiny bones in the upper neck (Atlas and Axis), called subluxation, the nerves surrounding the misaligned joints will become irritated.

The inflammation occurring as a result can cause fluid blockages or an abnormal amount of fluid in the ear. This fluid buildup can disrupt the hearing and balance signals being relayed between the inner ear and the brain. Without treatment, your condition can get worse and that is why upper cervical chiropractic is a preferred treatment option for many patients.

The treatment involves gentle adjustments to the upper spine to minimize nerve pressure and promote mind-body communication. When there is an undisrupted flow of nerve impulses, your body can heal itself, without the need of medicines or surgery. Thus, we do not just treat the symptoms, but we get to the root cause of the problem.

How Does Upper Cervical Chiropractic of Georgia Treat Inner Ear Disorders?

Your first visit will typically include thorough assessment to identify and address the cause of your inner ear disorder. Your chiropractor may test your reflexes and observe how you turn and bend.

The goal is to locate any malfunction in your upper spine that could be a culprit. In order to determine the exact area of the spine that may need adjustment, X-rays or other tests using state-of-art equipment will be done. These assessments also help us to develop an individually tailored treatment plan.

When it comes time for the correction, you will be asked to lie on an adjustment table in a particular position. Your upper cervical chiropractor will then apply gentle pressure on your neck at a precise angle.

The aim is to put the atlas and axis vertebrae back into the right position.

Follow-up x-rays may be done to confirm that the alignment is successful. Follow-up appointments will be decided following the initial adjustment.

What Inner Ear Disorders Can Upper Cervical Chiropractic of Georgia help with?

Upper cervical chiropractic has proven to be quite effective for the following inner ear disorders:

Vertigo: Vertigo is a sensation of feeling dizzy. If you are having vertigo, you might feel like the world around you is spinning. Vertigo can occur due to a number of different reasons, but the most common cause is an inner ear infection.

Meniere's disease: It is another ear disorder characterized by dizzy spells like vertigo. However, it is also accompanied by hearing loss. Other symptoms include ringing in the ear (tinnitus) and feeling of fullness in the ear (aural fullness).

Vestibular neuritis or labyrinthitis: This disorder is usually related to viral infection. It is marked by the inflammation in the inner ear around nerves that play a significant role in helping the person maintain equilibrium or body balance. Symptoms are similar to those of Meniere’s disease.
