Can you give me any advise on finding a chiropractor/doctor who specializes in menieres?Hello Ann,
I would suggest you contact your local chiropractic association and ask specifically for someone who is knowledgeable about BPPV.
True Meniere's disease which includes deafness and tinnitis, ringing in the ears, is not to my knowledge really treatable. What's needed in the first instance is a diagnosis. Do you have Meniere's or vertigo?
BPPV is very treatable, Menieres is not.
May I add that I very definitely would not adjust the upper cervical spine of the dizzy patient until the Epley manoeuvres have been tried, and preferably the Hallpark Dix test is negative.
These are terms that you are probably not familiar with, but they are important. The risks associated with chiropractic manipulation are very low, and I mean very, hence our low insurance premiums, but the dizzy patient is more at risk.
There are more conservative chiropractic techniques like the use of an "activator" that would be advisable.
I'm not trying to put you off. I treat many dizzy patients, but with great care, gently, and the odd prayer! Chiropractors rush in where angels fear to tread! The vertebro basilar artery is at risk.
Let me know how you get on. I hope this contributes.
