Objective: The purpose of this case study is to report the resolution of trigeminal neuralgia (TN) paroxysms and improvement in quality of life experienced by a patient undergoing Chiropractic Biophysics (CBP) and Diversified chiropractic care.

Clinical Features: A 77-year-old female presented with severe right-sided TN of seven years duration. TN pain was only initially helped by medication and exacerbated by chewing, talking, and smiling. When symptoms were their worst, the patient was unable to eat or talk well for 4 days. At the time of presenting into office, the patient rated the pain 10 out of 10 on the visual analog scale; describing it as a constant hot, throbbing, burning sensation that progressively get worse.

Intervention and Outcomes: CPB and Diversified techniques were utilized to adjust and correct subluxations at C1 and other segments. Nutritional supplementation including Omega-3’s and Vitamin D was also implemented. After six visits the patient saw significant reduction in pain. After four months she went off her medication and at 6 months was pain free.

Conclusions: This case demonstrates the effectiveness of subluxation-based chiropractic care in managing the debilitating symptoms of TN. Further research is advised.
