Excruciating facial pain not responding to medication?

Excruciating facial pain not responding to medication?

What would you do if you faced Ryan’s painful situation?

When does a pain in the face start as a pain in the neck?

Thanks to Ryan for posting this on to Facebook, and sharing his story. He experienced dramatic Jaw and TMJ nerve pain, and was going to be evaluated for trigeminal neuralgia. One gentle correction to his neck brought a quick change in his symptoms.

Trigeminal neuralgia nerve pain upper cervical chiropractor testimonial“Around a month ago I had the absolute worst pain of my life for several weeks. Excruciating. Facial nerves on fire, worse every day. Wanted to rip teeth or part of my face off. TMJ. Primary Care Dr. was genuinely concerned, gave me Vicodin (didn’t help) and a medication used for controlling seizures which is protocol for given diagnosis. Now I was a zombie ..in pain. I certainly don’t understand medicine but this “solution” with no clear cause concerned me.

27 signs your problem could be coming from your neck - a free checklist from an upper cervical perspective

So… I went to an Upper Cervical chiropractic Dr. Zachacry Ward, a gentlemen that I would venture is one of the smartest men I know based on unrelated conversations. I’d never heard of an Upper Cervical chiropractioner … but my guts weren’t really trusting mainstream medicine and long term medication unless truly necessary.

I have been pain free and med for several weeks since my first visit. 3 days to undue pain from over terrible 3 weeks I may not understand how alignment of stuff in my neck cause issues and undeniable changes in muscle tensions I can track – but I cannot deny the results. Even had the seizure meds worked, this restored my quality of life. (And now I know why I always had to bend my glasses frames so much)

This is a good local dude, a man of integrity, and I’m stingy on saying that stuff. Keep an open mind if you have a relevant health problem…”

Research: Patient satisfaction with upper cervical chiropractic care.

“Chiropractic care using UCT may have a fairly common occurrence of mild intensity SRs short in duration (<24 hours), and rarely severe in intensity; however, outcome assessments were significantly improved with less than 3 weeks of care with a high level of patient satisfaction. Although our findings need to be confirmed in subsequent randomized studies… Continue Reading

No longer sleeping away weekends

Now, I am happier, more social, and smile more. I sleep almost through the night, and I’m not waking up three times a night. I am more ready to go, rather than sitting at home. I feel more healthy and happy than I was before walking into your office. I am taking vitamins and eating healthier than I did before. I am very grateful. Continue Reading
