Relief from Facial Pain

IMG_7926Meet Carol.  She came to our Lubbock office from New Mexico to see if we could help her with her Trigeminal Neuralgia pain.  She’d tried several other options including pain management and had even been told she’d need surgery to try and calm the nerves in her face.  When I examined her, I noted abnormal motion in her jaw (TMJ) and severe spasms of the muscles that move her jaw such as the masseter, pterygoids, and especially the Temporalis muscle which attaches to the side of the head at the temple.  We used a combination of OTZ chiropractic adjustments to the upper neck, Class IV laser pain therapy to the jaw and temple, as well as Impulse instrument adjusting to the jaw.  Carol has had her pain reduced by approximately 90% and is grateful to not need surgery.  Before you have surgery, see if there are other options.  You can always have the surgery, but you can never undo the surgery.
