How to Treat Maldebarquement Syndrome
Hi, my name is Dr. Troy Giles. I'm a Doctor of Chiropractic and today I wanted to talk to you a little bit about an interesting issue that's called Mal de Debarquement syndrome.
I have a patient with this and she's been about a year post cruise. She went on a cruise and has not stopped moving internally. It's a sensation of literally that the ground is moving. If you've ever been on a cruise, it's like sea sickness. You can feel the boat moving and you get your sea legs and it's like okay I know what this is like, because it's, I can feel the boat rocking back and forth, but once you get off the boat, or off the ship. They don't call it a boat. Don't call a cruise ship a boat.
It's a ship. Once you get off of a ship, it still feels like you're moving. And when I've been on several cruises, I, for about a week after, I feel this sense of motion. Well she's been doing this now for a year. It's difficult for her to go to church, to go to a one of the big stores, where there's a lot of people, movement. And what they find, what they're suggesting is that the crystals that are on the, those little fingers, the little like hair structures inside the cochlea apparatus in your inner ear.
It's inside past your drum, that have these little crystals on them that sometimes because of this motion, either the crystals will fall off or the sensors, these little hair follicles, or hair issues will kind of tip over and not sense the motion, not sense that I'm now on dry ground. The thing isn't moving below me anymore. Now on top of this issue of her having this rocking sensation, she's been sick. She got sick in her abdomen. She had a lot of nausea and vomiting and so forth a few days afterwards, after she got off the cruise.
So besides getting sick in her abdomen, she also had this issue where the fibers, the little hair structures had fallen off. We've treated her for about two months with not much affect in the Mal de Debarquement syndrome. She still senses this rolling sense, this motion. Her back and so forth, chiropractically, is doing much better, but this Mal de Debarquement syndrome is still there. Well the other day I was sensing that we should set her literally down on the table. So I set her down and laid her, she was actually laying down on the table, like this. I'm just going to lay down. She was up here like this and she laid her head down like this.
And as she was laying on her stomach, she was moving her head about. I had on the Pro, so the Pro Adjuster was working and when we adjust, you've seen in previous videos probably that the Pro Adjuster puts in a pulse, like this. (Clicking sound) You can actually see this moving. (Clicking sound) Well I had her at twenty pulses, or twenty pounds, which is about this and I was putting it on the back of her head as she was upside down moving her head all around. The idea was to vibrate and move those crystalline structures back on to those fibers. The interesting thing was her head being upside down was moving around in a different position. Normally you're standing and gravity is this way, but I put her upside down so that gravity was opposite of that. Now as the vibration into the occiput and back here into the mastoid processes, right here, by her ear, up around her ear, we did that.
For a full hour, she didn't have any of the rolling sensation. And this was just on two days ago. So we redid that again today and I'll find out how that works. But at this point there's really no cure for it, from what they're saying. It just can go away in a year or so, or it could be there for the rest of your life. So I will tune in, tune in a future video and I'll tell you how this is going, but the reestablishment of the crystals on to the hair structures, and to make sure that the hair structures are standing and receiving the proprioception or the inner ear motion as your moving your head about, that's a good way to reestablish that with that pulsing of the Pro Adjuster. And then to make sure that there's no inner ear infection, sometimes you can have a layer of infection, a small amount of infection in the drum.
Maybe you've got a virus or a parasite or something that's there irritating, causing inflammation. So to make sure that's gone as well. So again, this is called Mal de Debarquement syndrome.
