Symptoms of Trigeminal Neuralgia
This condition is caused by pressure on the trigeminal nerve located at the base of the spine that extends into the spine. Symptoms are, shooting pains in the face, burning sensation, painful spasms, and pain in the gums, lips, and teeth. Numbness in the face that lasts several minutes or longer when it occurs. Trigeminal Neuralgia can be caused by illness, aging, and damage to the trigeminal nerve. We often work along with primary care providers to help treat this condition as efficiently as possible.
Diagnosis and Chiropractic Treatments
When you come in for an exam our chiropractor will take a medical history and give you a physical exam. It may include touching your face and examining the neck and spine. Blood and imaging tests will be included to rule out any other serious illnesses. They use diagnostic and neurological testing to determine the degree of the condition. Once your condition is diagnosed we will design a customized program for you.
Spinal manipulation of the neck and spine are often used to relieve pain in the trigeminal nerve. This relieves tension in the spine. These manipulations relax muscles that put pressure on the nerve, increase blood flow, and improves movement. Spinal manipulation can relieve pain, provide balance, and relieve blood vessel pressure. We have drop table technique that uses specialized tables to move different parts of the body.
They use two different machines with electrical stimulation to improve cell functioning, blood flow, and helps blood cells regenerate. These machines reduce inflammation, joint pain, neck pain, and nerve damage. The overall treatment can manage pain, reducing the need for over the counter or prescription medications. We may combine chiropractic care with heat therapy, cold therapy or cold laser therapy. Additional therapies that we used to treat this condition are massage and nutritional counseling.
