Trigeminal neuralgia (TN) is a very painful condition whose nickname is “the suicide disease” because one of the leading causes of death amongst people who have it is suicide. The trigeminal cranial nerve comes off the base of the skull and innervates the face. <br /> <br /> When there is damage to the upper cervical spine, it can sometimes affect that nerve causing severe pain in the face. Medical treatments range from pharmaceuticals and botox to nerve ablation and microvascular decompression.
Many patients find relief with Upper Cervical chiropractic care. Most people with Trigeminal neuralgia that we see have already tried the medical route and sometimes even non-medical interventions without success.
Upper Cervical chiropractors are able to focus on realigning the upper cervical spine, allowing the brainstem and other craniocervical junction structures to heal. This healing is what allows the patient to recover from the severe pain that trigeminal neuralgia causes.

Most medical professionals tend to prescribe pain management treatments for patients dealing with Trigeminal Neuralgia, but rarely address the root cause of the issue. Trigeminal Neuralgia is an extremely painful condition that affects the nerves primarily surrounding the face. This condition is characterized by painful hypersensitivity around the neck and face, which means that talking, eating, and light sensations can cause extreme levels of pain from those irritated nerves.

TN is known to progressively worsen over time, so it’s imperative that people suffering from this condition get the help they need. Rather than traditional pain management techniques, upper cervical chiropractic aims to restore the alignment of the upper cervical region of the spine, and thus bring the brain stem and nervous system into their healthiest positions, and eliminate pain from irritated nerves.
When you’re experiencing pain this severe, pain management professionals may recommend surgeries, and medications to help reduce the severity of the pain. After a while, the pain may come back, or the medications may need to steadily increase to provide the level of relief needed.
Because this pain is caused by an issue with the Trigeminal nerve, we recommend treatment from an upper cervical chiropractor, who can help restore the alignment of the spine and nervous system.

In order to treat your condition, we will use x-ray imaging to see what vertebrae are experiencing misalignment, and develop a treatment plan to ease the spine into proper alignment.
It can be difficult to diagnose trigeminal neuralgia at first, and it can be brought on by things like injuries, sports activity, car accidents, or any situation that could damage the upper cervical region.
Any situation that could’ve knocked the neck and spine out of alignment can cause issues like these, because of the delicate nature of the spine, and the irritation that can end up affecting the nerves along the neck and spine.
Upper cervical chiropractors work by taking x-rays, looking into where the irritation or misalignment is stemming from, and using gentle adjustment techniques to ease the vertebrae into proper alignment.
When the spine is properly aligned, the nervous system is able to function properly. Proper alignment of the spine can reduce pain caused by blood vessel impingement upon nerve tissue and conditions like Trigeminal neuralgia.
In one case study, a woman who had suffered from debilitating facial pain for years found relief after receiving chiropractic care to align her upper neck. After just a few adjustments, she was able to live pain-free for the first time in years. This case study demonstrates the importance of proper spinal alignment in overall nervous system function and pain reduction.
When the spine is properly aligned, blood vessels are free to flow unobstructed and nerves are free from irritation, leading to a decrease in pain sensation. If you suffer from chronic pain, consider seeking chiropractic care to improve your spinal alignment and nervous system function.
