Trigeminal Neuralgia is Painful
Trigeminal neuralgia “attacks” are one of the most intense types of facial pain. In fact, TN, is referred to as the suicide disease. Firstly, episodes include bursts of excruciating pain on one side of the face (typically along the distribution of the trigeminal nerve). In rare cases, the symptoms are on both sides of the face. Also, simple movements can trigger a trigeminal neuralgia episode such as:
- brushing your teeth
- putting on makeup
- touching your face
- eating or drinking
- a breeze on your face
Also, anti-seizure medications are prescribed. But, if these medications don’t work, peripheral nerve blocks and/or surgery are recommended. However, NUCCA adjustments provide a natural alternative to reducing or eliminating trigeminal neuralgia pain without drugs, injections or surgery.
Trigeminal Neuralgia Help | Your Neck and TN
Accidents and injuries can misalign the top bone in your neck, atlas. That is to say, these types of injuries can compress the trigeminal nerve resulting in pain and symptoms. Therefore, an atlas misalignment is detected through diagnostic testing and precision NUCCA x-rays. However, through specific NUCCA protocols, an upper cervical chiropractor corrects the atlas misalignment resulting in symptomatic relief.
Also, one of the best known cases of Trigeminal Neuralgia and upper cervical care is James Tomasi’s. Mr. Tomasi wrote about his experience in his book, What Time Tuesday? In his book he describes how he went from suffering from TN to being an upper cervical advocate. In other words, he 100% attributes his recovery to upper cervical care after all else had failed.
