Research shows that trigeminal neuralgia originates from compressive forces surrounding the trigeminal nerve. Because of the immense pain and difficulty in diagnosing, intense medications and surgical treatment is regularly offered.
Due to the neurological origin and increasing trends towards alternative options rather than drugs and surgery, many individuals suffering from trigeminal neuralgia have turned to chiropractic for help.
A 2016 case report described a 55-year old woman who had been suffering from Tic Douloureux for 6 months. After a thorough evaluation of her spine and series of adjustments to the upper cervical neck her facial pain completely dissipated! After only three months, she reported that she had not had any further episodes of Trigeminal Neuralgia.
