Suffering from Trigeminal Neuralgia? Let Us Treat You

If you feel a sharp pain in your jaw or cheek that is like an electric shock, you could be suffering from Trigeminal Neuralgia. The pain could intensify and go away after a few minutes. The pain can also manifest behind the eye.

The condition is due to some disorders of the trigeminal nerve. It spreads across your face and traverses through your eyes, jaws, and cheeks. The nerve transmits signals from your face to your brain of the pressure and temperature. Also, it governs your chewing action.

Types of Trigeminal Neuralgia

Medical scientists have established two types of the condition:

Classic Trigeminal Neuralgia

It is also called Type 1. Classic Trigeminal Neuralgia is the most common type of the condition.
If you experience pain in your jaw or check that is abrupt, intense, stabbing, and shock-like, you might suffer from the Type 1 condition. The pain can start from a touch, heat, or cold. Usually, the pain can last from a few seconds to many minutes.

Atypical Trigeminal Neuralgia

It is less common and also called Type 2. Atypical Trigeminal Neuralgia sets off burning or aching pain that may last for days or weeks. Usually, the condition is difficult to treat.

How Acupuncture Can Beat Trigeminal Neuralgia

Acupuncture is an excellent treatment for trigeminal neuralgia. It stimulates specific points on the affected body parts called acupoints.

When physiotherapists stimulate the acupoints, they release hormones and neurotransmitters, such as endorphins, which reduce pain.

In addition, acupuncture improves blood circulation, which can help reduce inflammation and speed up healing.

However, the effectiveness of the treatment depends on the physiotherapist’s expertise and experience.
