Trigeminal neuralgia

Trigeminal neuralgia, often termed as one of the most intense pains, causes sudden, brief bursts of facial pain lasting for just a few seconds, sometimes less than a minute, and can occur in two places simultaneously. Around 70-80% of patients with this condition are over 40 years old, and it's slightly more prevalent in women than men.

Key Symptoms:

Facial muscles on one side often experience brief but intense pain, typically lasting around 1-2 minutes. This recurring pain is quite similar in each episode and is commonly felt in areas like the lips, nose, eyebrows, and mouth.

It's crucial to note that trigeminal neuralgia is a serious condition. If you experience similar symptoms, seek immediate examination and treatment at a neurosurgical hospital.

Causes of Trigeminal Neuralgia:

  • Mental stimulation

  • Compression from blood vessels

  • Viral infection

  • Nerve damage causing abnormal demyelination

Treatment for trigeminal neuralgia involves three components:

  • Medications

  • Procedures like radiofrequency thermocoagulation or surgery

  • Alpha-BB cold laser therapy

"Alpha-BB demonstrates effective pain relief and calming benefits for trigeminal nerve pain. Laser therapy doesn't harm sensory fibers and successfully alleviates discomfort."

What is Alpha-BB and what issues can it address?

Alpha-BB penetrates deeply into cells to ease pain, diminish inflammation, speed up tissue repair and cell regeneration, enhance blood vessel function, and minimize fibrous tissue formation.

Treatment Procedure

Allocate 8 minutes for the device placement along the eye meridian branch. Repeat this for another 8 minutes at the cheekbone and then for another 8 minutes at the jaw below the ear.

We advise repeating this process twice daily for around 30 minutes each session.

One course of treatment spans 5 days, with a recommended 2-day break between sessions.

We suggest completing 2 courses of treatment.
