Trigeminal neuralgia has sometimes been called the suicide disease, because the pain can last for years without any hint of relief.   It’s a terrible, debilitating disease that literally forces someone’s life to be put on hold.  It’s not the only chronic pain problem that does that; it’s just one of the many.

To read a story about one man’s decision to commit suicide to finally get relief from his trigeminal neuralgia, and his subsequent upper cervical (NUCCA) adjustment just in time to save his life, check out this website.  This man, James Tomasi, has an amazing purpose in life to share the news about upper cervical chiropractic and its impact on his life as well as the lives of others.  He is passionate about saving other lives!

NUCCA can help with trigeminal neuralgia, or facial pain.  It’ll take time, due to the nature of chronic pain.  However, it has helped time and again and it could possibly help you.  The idea is to get the proper blood flow to and from the nerves enabling it to get oxygen and get rid of waste products. It also helps take pressure off of the nerve in some cases.  Nerves take a long time to heal, but they can often heal if given the chance.

Call (925) 829-7900 to set up an appointment for relief for your chronic pain.  We are located in Dublin, CA.
