Ménière’s Disease

Contact music is reporting that Glee star Kristin Chenoweth is suffering from the inner ear condition Meniere’s disease, which can cause episodes of vertigo, tinnitus and hearing loss, and she’s struggling to deal with the condition.

Talking to Twitter.com, she writes, “Oh menieres disease. I’d like to eliminate you.”

Chenoweth has yet to share any further details about her illness, and it is not clear whether her current condition is related to the accident she suffered on the set of Tv legal drama The Good Wife last July, when a lighting rig fell and hit her on the head. The incident left her with a fractured skull, concussion, three cracked teeth, and neck, rib and hip injuries.

But frequently head and neck trauma can initiate the onset of Ménière’s disease and other conditions. Some of the most hopeful research for Ménière’s sufferers has come out in the past 5 years.

Latest Research Points to the Upper Neck

Dr. Michael Burcon has investigated the effects of upper cervical specific chiropractic management of patients medically diagnosed with Meniere’s disease. Dr. Burcon has shared his findings with Ménière’s research conferences around the world.

In one of his studies looking at upper cervical specific chiropractic care and Ménière’s, one hundred and thirty-six out of the one hundred and thirty-nine patients presented with an absence or dramatic reduction of Ménière’s symptoms, especially vertigo…that’s 97%!

After two years, on a scale of 0 to 10, with 0 representing the absence of the symptom and 10 being the worst imaginable, vertigo was lowered from an average of 8.5 to 1.4. Prior to the onset of symptoms, all one hundred and thirty nine cases suffered cervical traumas; most from automobile accidents, resulting in previously undiagnosed whiplash injuries.

Kristin Chenoweth’s recent head trauma is consistent with these findings. It’s Important that she gets evaluated by an upper cervical specialist to determine the underlying damage to the upper neck that is likely leading to these problems.

If you have had a history of head or neck trauma and are suffering from similar symptoms take the first step today!
