Objective: The purpose of this study is to describe an upper cervical chiropractic mechanism, Quantum Spinal Mechanics 3 (QSM3), and its application of postural analysis, restoring a postural misalignment, leading to the improvement of Trigeminal Neuralgia (TN) symptoms. Clinical Features: A patient formerly diagnosed with TN over the right side, experienced spontaneous, intermittent pain, aggravated by activities such as chewing, talking and stress related interactions. The algorithm that was…

REDUCTION IN TRIGEMINAL NEURALGIA SYMPTOMS AND IMPROVED PHYSICAL AND EMOTIONAL WELLBEING IN A 65-YEAR-OLD FEMALE
TLDR
A course of chiropractic care, using AMCT for the assessment and correction of vertebral subluxation, was associated with reduction of symptoms associated with trigeminal neuralgia.

Resolution of Trigeminal Neuralgia Following Upper Cervical Chiropractic Care: A Case Study
TLDR
This case does demonstrate promise for the successful implementation of upper cervical chiropractic care in the management of trigeminal neuralgia, however there is certainly a strong need for further research to support this claim.
Trigeminal neuralgia and chiropractic care: a case report.
TLDR
A 68 year-old woman with a 7(1/2) year history of worsening head and neck pain diagnosed as trigeminal neuralgia following surgical resection of a brain tumor and the positive role chiropractic care can have in the management of patients with these clinical conditions is demonstrated.
Advances in diagnosis and treatment of trigeminal neuralgia
TLDR
The aim of this work was to review the recent literature about the pathogenesis, diagnosis, and medical and surgical treatments of trigeminal neuralgia, and discuss the significant advances in all these fields.

Treatment of trigeminal neuralgia: role of radiofrequency ablation
TLDR
The technique of radiofrequency rhizolysis of the trigeminal nerve is described in detail in this review and Carbamazepine remains the drug of choice in the first-line treatment of TN.

Resolution of Facial Neuralgia Following Reduction of Atlas Subluxation Complex: A Case Study
TLDR
A patient diagnosed with both trigeminal and glossopharyngeal neuralgia undergoing upper cervical chiropractic care using the NUCCA protocol is provided with symptomatic improvement.
Arterial compression of nerve is the primary cause of trigeminal neuralgia
Whether arterial or venous compression or arachnoid adhesions are primarily responsible for compression of the trigeminal nerve in patients with trigeminal neuralgia is unclear. The aim of this study
Pathological findings associated with trigeminal neuralgia caused by vascular compression.
TLDR
Findings support the hypothesis that ephaptic transmission plays a role in the pathogenesis of trigeminal neuralgia related to vascular compression, which is associated with focal loss of myelin and close apposition of the demyelinated axons.
