Trigeminal Neuralgia in Marietta

person with pain in their faceTrigeminal neuralgia, also known as tic douloureux, affects the 5th cranial nerve. It’s thought to be caused by a blood vessel pressing on the nerve near the brainstem, causing irritation or biochemical changes in the body.

There are two types—type 1, which is most common, produces burning sensations and severe pain, and type 2, which is atypical, is less extreme. Both are extremely painful, making it difficult to function normally.

Patients we see at Berner Upper Cervical Chiropractic usually experience extreme pain in the face, like an electric shock, which can be unrelenting. It has even been called the worst pain a person can experience.

While medication may provide some relief, it may cause numbness in the face, and has many side effects. In some instances, the condition is misdiagnosed because the pain does not occur where the problem originated. Surgical intervention is considered the last option for most.

How We Help

Chiropractic care is based on keeping the nervous system healthy. Since the trigeminal nerve originates in the brainstem, where most neurological interference occurs, upper cervical chiropractic may be the answer you’ve been seeking.

Dr. Berner has had a high success rate in caring for patients with trigeminal neuralgia. Using his X-ray protocol, he’s able to pinpoint where the problem is and release the pressure on the nerve. Many patients have experienced relief for the first time after adjustment. With regular care, most are able to remain pain-free for long periods of time.

Results You Can See

Dr. Berner had one woman with trigeminal neuralgia who travelled an hour to Berner Upper Cervical Chiropractic for care. She had been to dentists, physical therapists, and other medical professionals seeking relief from her pain.

After getting adjusted, she had almost instantaneous relief. The woman remained pain-free for six months after the first adjustment, and returned for care. With each adjustment, she stays pain-free longer.
