Bell's palsy, trigeminal neuralgia, hemifacial spasm, facial pain, face painFew conditions can be as painful both physically and emotionally as the group of cranial nerve compression syndromes. What are cranial nerve compression syndromes? There are a few. Some of the more common or well-known syndromes include Bell’s palsy, trigeminal neuralgia, and hemifacial spasm.

When a patient presents with one of these conditions, the common practice is to correct the issue with surgery or Botox. The surgery performed to treat cranial nerve compression syndromes is costly and has a measure of risk. It is a form of brain surgery called microvascular decompression.

For many, the cost and risk of these procedures have drawn them to a different approach – one that is proven to be effective and affordable.

The Upper Cervical Solution

Studies show that those who suffer from the above-listed conditions generally have had some neck or head trauma in their lifetime. This can cause a misalignment of the upper cervical vertebrae. The syndromes mentioned above are all brain stem disorders that are one sided. If cranial nerves are not functioning as they should, realigning the upper spine can completely resolve the root of the problem.

Consider one case study of a 57-year-old woman. She had trigeminal neuralgia on the right side for two years, plus high blood pressure, pain, and various other complaints. She had a history of traumatic falls and one recent fall on the sidewalk. One week after her first adjustment, her pain noticeably diminished. Eight weeks later her neurologist took her completely off the medication prescribed for her trigeminal neuralgia. Two years later, she was still pain-free and off the medication, plus her blood pressure had come down.

Upper cervical chiropractors have been treating these and many other conditions successfully. It is worth investigating whether or not seeing an upper cervical chiropractor would be beneficial for you. Fixing the root of the problem is what can bring about lasting relief from painful conditions like Meniere’s and Bell’s palsy.
