Trigeminal Neuralgia is a severe condition in which a large nerve in your head becomes irritated and can cause severe pain. It is a devastating problem, and fortunately Chiropractic adjustments to the neck have been shown to help.
A 58 year-old female who had been diagnosed with trigeminal neuralgia six years prior by a neurologist, sought Chiropractic care. She had been taking anticonvulsive medication to control the painful attacks which occurred above her right eye, but when they were no longer effective, she felt it was time to try something new.
She began a course of corrective Chiropractic care, and after nine weeks she reported improvement in symptomatic complaints and had not experienced an attack of trigeminal neuralgia.
