Last time we learned about trigeminal neuralgia … the symptoms, the triggers and the most popular current forms of treatment.
And today I am going to explain to you how and why chiropractic care gets such great results with trigeminal neuralgia.
The trigeminal nerve which is one of your 12 cranial nerves originates from your brainstem.
Remember that your brainstem is an extension of your brain that resides inside the 3 vertebrae right at the very top of your neck (C1,2,3).
When you look at the Chart of Effects of Spinal Misalignments found right on our home page you will see that one of the effects of a spinal misalignment (subluxation) in this area of the neck is neuralgia (nerve pain).
And when neuralgia affects the trigeminal nerve specifically, the end result is facial pain.
We have had many patients over the years get significant relief from their facial pain with chiropractic care and some of them have never had a trigeminal nerve attack ever again.
And the reason why is because with careful analysis and realignment (adjustment) of the upper part of the neck, we were able to remove the irritation from the brainstem and the trigeminal nerve which resulted in facial pain relief.
So if you or someone you know is suffering from trigeminal neuralgia, please give me a call.
