Vertigo is the most debilitating symptom known to man. You feel like you are spinning in circles. It includes nausea with vomiting, nystagmus and sweating. It is followed by fatigue and often leads to anxiety and depression. Michael T. Burcon, B.Ph., D.C., director of the Institute in Grand Rapids, MI developed the protocol, now taught at some chiropractic colleges, that leads to faster results in difficult cases.
Dr. Burcon has spoken at every International Meniere's Disease Symposium over the past 14 years, including the 7th Meniere's Symposium in Rome, Italy in 2015 and the 6th Symposium in Kyoto, Japan in 2010. Dr. Burcon's next presentation will be in Shanghai, China in 2020. His research is quoted in the Merck Manual.
"Unfortunately, medical doctors don't know what Meniere's disease is, what causes it, and as a result they don't know how to treat it. At best, they try to control the symptoms with drugs and surgery. It remains one of the most baffling and incapacitating conditions a person can experience. Now for the good news. In 1999, upper cervical spine chiropractor Dr. Michael T. Burcon made a serendipitous discovery—the underlying cause of Meniere's disease. Because of this, for the first time in more than 150 years, you can receive simple, painless treatment, and then wave good bye to your Meniere's disease. I spent 6 months researching this new treatment for Meniere's disease to be sure it was legitimate and that it worked. I was so convinced this was the way to get rid of Meniere's that I changed the title of the fourth edition of my Meniere's book. I gave it the new title, "Say Good Bye to Meniere's Disease—Here's How to Make Your World Stop Spinning," Neil Bauman, Ph.D., Center for Hearing Loss.
"The reason it took so long to discover the cause of Meniere's disease is simple," said Burcon, "it takes an average of 15 years from the time of the trauma, a whiplash/concussion injury caused by a vehicular accident or significant blow to the head, before the onset of symptoms." Most patients are diagnosed with Meniere's in middle age, because they were injured in high school or college, when they were learning to drive, playing sports or attempting to do something they came to regret.
Ligaments are damaged allowing an upper cervical subluxation complex to slowly develop. The brain slips lower into the foramen magnum, slowing the flow of cerebrospinal fluid out of the skull, creating normal pressure hydrocephalus. The skull acts as a closed hydraulic system, so less blood flows into the head and inner ear. Meanwhile, the patient has forgotten the injury. This syndrome is often missed on supine MRIs. All films should be taken upright and should include the cervical spine in addition to the head, focusing on the Craniocervical junction between them. The doctor's wife, Jane, works as a concierge to assist the patients before, during and after their visit. She is available Monday through Friday 10:00 am to 5:00 pm EST for more information or to schedule an appointment.
