Trigeminal neuralgia is progressive and long-term pain. It is linked directly to the trigeminal nerve responsible for delivering information to the brain about what you feel in the areas around your face.
If you would like to know how extensive this pain is, imagine intense and unexpected discomfort every time you do any of the following:
Some of you might be able to get away without smiling or talking for an entire day. Some people might even put off any hygienic practices like brushing the teeth or washing the face for a day or two. Unless you are doing an eternal fast, eating and drinking are necessary activities.
Although trigeminal neuralgia is not deadly, it subjects the afflicted to such excruciating pain. The pain level can leave the person and the caregivers helpless.
Upper cervical chiropractors, including those practicing the NUCCA method, are well-trained in assessing a person’s neck alignment. They pay particular attention to the top two bones of the neck called the atlas and the axis. These two are closest to the head and the brain’s base.
When the atlas and the axis are no longer correctly aligned, it can affect numerous bodily functions. A misalignment case can also increase the pressure that might affect the nerves in this section. A likely result is trigeminal neuralgia.
Here at Advanced Spinal Care, Dr. Tsiglieris meets with people regularly to ensure that the neck is aligned. When imaging results and his evaluations confirm gaps and misalignment, he employs gentle techniques to correct the imbalance and restore alignment. When this happens, it can release the pressure in the neck area. It may lead to trigeminal neuralgia relief.
