Trigeminal Neuralgia in Staten Island, NY

Calmare Pain Relief Solutions offers treatment for trigeminal neuralgia to the residents of Staten Island, Brooklyn, and the surrounding communities in New York.

WHAT IS TRIGEMINAL NEURALGIA?

Patients with trigeminal neuralgia suffer from chronic pain in the face.  The pain is caused by damage or compression to the trigeminal nerve that carries nerve messages from the face to the pain.  Patients with the condition typically experience sharp pain while performing normal day-to-day activities that involve the face or jaw, such as flossing, talking and chewing.

Early indications of trigeminal neuralgia include short, mild pain sensations, but as the condition progresses, the severity and frequency of pain increases.  The pain may be shooting, short-term, persistent, recurring, localized or generalized.  Patients may experience discomfort in their jaw, cheek, teeth, gums, lips, eye or forehead, and one or both sides may be affected.

HOW IS TRIGEMINAL NEURALGIA TREATED?

Trigeminal neuralgia may be treated with Calmare® Therapy, a non-narcotic, non-invasive medical procedure for the treatment of chronic pain.  For more information about Calmare® Therapy, please click here.

WHO IS A CANDIDATE FOR TREATMENT?

Trigeminal neuralgia typically affects women more than men, and most cases are seen in adults over 50 years of age.  Effective treatment for the condition is based upon an accurate diagnosis by a qualified physician.  Your physician completes a thorough examination, including additional tests.  You should discuss your symptoms and medical history with your physician to help with proper diagnosis.

After you are diagnosed with trigeminal neuralgia, your physician describes your treatment options.  During these discussions, you should ask any questions to help you make an informed decision about your care.

WHAT IS THE RECOVERY PROCESS?

The primary goal of your treatment for trigeminal neuralgia is to improve your quality of life by reducing or eliminating the effects of the condition.  Your recovery process largely depends on the severity of your condition, as well as how well you follow the recommendations of your physician.  Most importantly, you should be patient with yourself as you recover from trigeminal neuralgia.

Patients are under medical management during the recovery phase with an emphasis on minimizing and reducing pharmaceutical usage.
