  Title Resolution of trigeminal neuralgia in a 14 year old following upper cervical chiropractic care to reduce vertebral subluxation: A case study [case report]
Journal J Upper Cervical Chiropr Res. 2012 Summer;2012(3):77-84
Peer Review Yes
Publication Type Case Report

Objective: This paper reports on outcomes following chiropractic care for a 14 year old female with trigeminal neuralgia.

Clinical Features: 14-year old female presented with excruciating, intermittent left facial pain below the eye radiating into the jaw. Patient reported previous diagnosis of trigeminal neuralgia.

Interventions and Outcomes: Cervical radiographs, paraspinal digital infrared imaging, and pelvic balance leg length inequality were used to confirm upper cervical subluxation. A Knee Chest Upper Cervical Specific adjustment was administered to the C1 region of the spine. Patient’s progress was monitored through pattern analysis of the subluxations, pelvic balance, leg length inequality, and observational reports from the mother and child. The patient demonstrated a complete remission of symptoms after one adjustment. One year later, the patient remains asymptomatic.

Conclusion: The chiropractic care of a patient suffering with trigeminal neuralgia is presented. Complete alleviation of symptoms was achieved. It is feasible that chiropractic care can affect trigeminal neuralgia. Further study is recommended.
