vestiular neuronitis

 

Vestibular neuronitis is a lesser-known source of vertigo. Its cause is currently unknown, but it is thought to be due to a viral infection of the 8th cranial nerve, which is partially responsible for balance. Vestibular neuronitis is characterized by the following symptoms (1) –

  • Severe vertigo attack
  • Nausea or vomiting
  • Nystagmus (eye-jerking movements)
  • Symptoms persisting for between 7-10 days

With vestibular neuronitis, there is no ringing in the ear and hearing normal. The duration of these symptoms can be incredibly frustrating. Traditional management involves medication and potential vestibular rehabilitation if there are lingering effects to balance. There is a drugless alternative that helps address a potential underlying cause of vestibular neuronitis.

How Does Your Spine Relate to Balance?

Your spine  protects your spinal cord. Your spinal cord carries signals to and from your brain. When the top bone in your neck (atlas) is misaligned, this can create pressure within your spinal cord at the base of your neck. This can affect signals going to and from your brainstem, potentially leading to vertigo symptoms.

Sometimes vestibular problems can be daunting.  Is it Vertigo? Is it Meniere’s Disease?  Is it vestibular Neuronitis?  While diagnostic equipment and testing oftentimes pinpoints dysfunction, vestibular problems and their solution often evade convention medical care.  Patient’s with vestibular problems bounce from doctor to doctor from test to test but rarely are given a solution.  At Upper Cervical Health Centers our approach to helping patients is based on a different set of principles that are not well understood by convention health care.  Upper Cervical Care relies on the inherent innate healing potential in the body.  If there is dysfunction in the body many times it is due to abnormal nervous system function.  This results from upper neck misalignments that interfere with normal nervous system function.   

Dr. Hall provides  upper cervical chiropractic care, a specific chiropractic approach that detects and corrects the atlas misalignments. Through specific realignment of the atlas, the nervous system interference is relieved. The brainstem is able to send and receive messages without distortion. This may lead to a reduction of vertigo symptoms.

Elster conducted an analysis of 60 patients with chronic vertigo that received specific atlas corrections. 48 out of the 60 patients received complete resolution of vertigo symptoms. All of the cases received some reduction of vertigo severity and or frequency over the course of one to six months of atlas care. (2)
