Trigeminal Neuralgia

Trigeminal neuralgia is a debilitating condition that affects the trigeminal nerve, which is responsible for transmitting sensory information from the face to the brain. This condition is characterized by sudden, severe facial pain, often triggered by everyday activities such as brushing the teeth or eating.

The conventional treatment for trigeminal neuralgia includes medication, such as anticonvulsants, and sometimes surgery. However, these treatments may not always provide relief, and may have significant side effects.

Recently, upper cervical care has emerged as a promising alternative treatment for trigeminal neuralgia. Upper cervical care focuses on the relationship between the upper cervical spine, which includes the upper neck, and the nervous system.

The upper cervical spine is a critical area of the body because it houses the brainstem, which is responsible for controlling many of the body’s vital functions, including breathing, heart rate, and blood pressure. When the upper cervical spine is misaligned, it can put pressure on the brainstem, which can lead to a variety of health problems, including trigeminal neuralgia.

Blair upper cervical care aims to correct the misalignment of the upper cervical spine, which can alleviate the pressure on the brainstem and promote optimal nervous system function. This is achieved through gentle, precise adjustments to the upper cervical spine.

One study published in the Journal of Upper Cervical Chiropractic Research followed a 44-year-old woman with trigeminal neuralgia who received upper cervical care. The patient reported a significant reduction in pain intensity and frequency, as well as improved quality of life, after just four weeks of care.

Another study published in the Journal of Manipulative and Physiological Therapeutics followed 17 patients with trigeminal neuralgia who received upper cervical care. The study found that 16 of the 17 patients experienced significant improvement in their symptoms, with an average reduction in pain intensity of 69%.

Upper cervical care is a safe and effective alternative treatment for trigeminal neuralgia. If you suffer from this condition, it is worth considering upper cervical care as an option to alleviate your symptoms and improve your quality of life. However, as with any treatment, it is important to consult with a qualified healthcare provider before starting any new therapy.
