Help for Trigeminal Neuralgia in Marietta

Unpredictable and intense facial discomforts such as sharp, stabbing, or electrifying sensations define trigeminal neuralgia, a debilitating condition that can greatly affect an individual’s quality of life.

The upper cervical spine, or more specifically the region linking the first and second vertebrae, commonly referred to as the atlas and axis, is closely situated to the trigeminal nerve. Misalignment or compression in this area can potentially put undue pressure on this nerve, contributing significantly to the manifestation of trigeminal neuralgia.

Nerve Pathway Disruptions and Their Effects

Responsibility for communicating sensory information from the facial region to the brain rests on the trigeminal nerve. Any form of disruption or irritation along this pathway can trigger the profound pain associated with this condition.

Finding Relief With Upper Cervical Care

With very specific and detailed X-rays, upper cervical care can often get to the root cause of the problem by either directly removing neurological pressure, or allowing improved blood and CSF flow, which can, in turn, put pressure on the nerves when not functioning properly.
