About Low Pressure Pulse Therapy

Low pressure pulse therapy may lessen the intensity of your dizziness and assist you to return to a more active lifestyle. The therapy uses a small, portable device to deliver controlled air pressure pulses to the inner ear. The pulses may help reduce the swelling believed to cause the symptoms of Ménière’s disease.

What Is It?

It is thought that Ménière’s disease symptoms may be caused by too much inner ear pressure from excess inner ear fluid (endolymphatic fluid). Low pressure pulse therapy may help reduce the swelling and pressure in the inner ear.
