Living with trigeminal neuralgia is miserable. It can destroy your quality of life and can easily result in problems such as weight loss, isolation, and depression. On top of that, most conventional solutions become less effective as the condition progresses. If you or a loved one are in this predicament, it’s time to try something new.
That’s why we’ll discuss how Equiscope therapy can help you if you or someone you know suffers from this condition. But first, let’s understand it a bit better.
What is Trigeminal Neuralgia?
Trigeminal neuralgia is sudden, severe facial pain that’s often described as sharp shooting pain or like having an electric shock to your gum, jaw, or teeth. It usually only affects just one side of your face, with the pain centered in the lower part of your face. But occasionally, trigeminal neuralgic pain can affect both sides of the face, although rarely at the same time.
These attacks are unpredictable and can last from a few seconds up to two minutes. They stop as suddenly as they start. The attacks occur regularly for days, weeks, or even months at a time. And in extreme cases, attacks may occur hundreds of times each day. Some people develop a continuous aching, throbbing, or burning sensation that accompanies the sharp attacks.
What Causes Trigeminal Neuralgia?
The two main causes are compression of the trigeminal nerve and trigeminal nerve damage.
The trigeminal nerve is inside your skull. It transmits sensations of touch and pain from your mouth, teeth, and face to your brain. If a nearby blood vessel presses on the trigeminal nerve and compresses it, the nerve malfunctions.
If a medical condition like multiple sclerosis (MS) or a tumor damages the trigeminal nerve, this will also make the nerve misfire and cause trigeminal pain.
Unfortunately, the attacks are usually brought on by daily activities that involve touching the face, like washing, eating, and brushing the teeth. The nerve is so sensitive that even a slight breeze or air can trigger attacks. Sometimes an attack can even happen with no trigger.
Does the Condition Go Away?
The first question patients often ask their doctors is, will it go away? Although the pain may improve or even disappear altogether for several months or years at a time, trigeminal neuralgia will not go away. The pain will likely get progressively worse over time. And the time between attacks will become shorter and shorter.
How Can Equiscope Therapy Help?
Equiscope technology has been proven to alleviate chronic pain using non-invasive and pain-free methods. It uses a neural response computer to scan and adjust the nervous system from fight and flight into rest and repair. It’s like giving the body at the cellular level a jump start.
The results of Equiscope therapy, when used for trigeminal neuralgic pain, have been more than promising.
For example, Teresa, who had suffered from a pain level of 6+ for over 17 years, was elated after her Equiscope therapy. For the first time, she was able to roll her window down without fear of the breeze causing an attack!
And Janice, a 35-year-old woman who’d suffered from trigeminal neuralgia for 15 years, worked with an Equiscope practitioner and has been pain-free for 14 months!
