Characteristics of Ménière's syndrome: Ménière's disease is a disorder of the inner ear and vestibular apparatus. It has three basic symptoms: tinnitus (noises or buzzing in the ears), hearing loss and vertigo (dizziness). Ménière's syndrome is caused by a dysfunction of part of the inner ear (endolymphatic hydrops). The symptom that prevails over the other two symptoms is rotational vertigo attacks, which are very variable and are usually preceded by an aura. This symptom reaches its maximum intensity within several minutes and lasts an average of two to three hours. The two other symptoms, tinnitus and impaired hearing, are usually unilateral. Tinnitus can be permanent or intermittent.
Impaired hearing progresses during the course of the disease and normalisation of hearing is not achieved. Causal therapy is not known. During attacks, vertigo-reducing drugs are administered along with medications that regulate the composition and amount of endolymph. After the failure of all other options, surgical treatment is indicated.
Ménière's syndrome always has the same clinical symptoms, but the cause may be different (e.g. hormonal disturbances, water metabolism disorder, hypovitaminosis, toxic substances, cervical spine disorders, post-traumatic conditions, and others).
Tinnitus may occur as part of Ménière's disease or separately. A perfusion disorder and impaired blood supply to the inner ear are always present as an underlying cause. Hence, the treatment is aimed at improving the supply of oxygenated blood and nutrients. If the changes are persistent and permanent damage occurs, the effects of treatment are minimal.
Using magnetic therapy in Ménière's syndrome
We recommend Biomag low-frequency pulsed magnetic field therapy on the ears and neck as soon as possible after onset of the symptoms. A significant improvement in the blood flow through the arterioles and capillaries is achieved and conditions are created for normal function and healing. In the event of a known underlying cause, we can deliver targeted treatment, for example, to the area of the liver, adrenal glands, or pancreas.
Application of magnetic therapy in Ménière's syndrome
In Ménière's syndrome, 8-20 Hz muscle relaxation frequencies (mainly for the cervical spine area) and vasodilatory effects (inner ear) are used to improve the microcirculation of oxygenated blood and nutrients. Treatment is applied via a solenoid to the head and flat applicator to the spine.
