Overall, acupuncture can be assimilated as a family of different procedures that involves stimulation of certain anatomical locations on the skin using various techniques. We offer first-rated acupuncture treatment in Singapore to help people overcome conditions like trigeminal neuralgia.
Trigeminal neuralgia is characterized by a sudden and severe pain of the face, which is often described as a shooting pain, just like electric shock. People who suffer from this disease have sudden attacks that last for a few seconds, or a few minutes, and stops abruptly. In most of the cases, the condition affects the face on the whole, though it may not happen always. In severe cases, the frequency of attacks could be as high as hundred times a day. Success of acupuncture for trigeminal neuralgia is quite high. Most of the treatments we perform at our clinic involves unblock of the nerve(s) that are compressing the trigeminal nerve. While this procedure can also be performed in the form of a surgery, there are many risks associated with any surgical procedure. Acupuncture, on the contrary, is a painless, safe and effective treatment that can unblock the compressed and damaged nerve to give you relief from pain and discomfort.
There are 3 major facial areas that are usually served by the main trigeminal nerve, which roughly corresponds to the eyebrow and forehead, the cheek and eye, upper jaw as well as the lower jaw. Our first-rated acupuncture treatment is effective in treating the cause of this condition at its roots. Usually, trigeminal neuralgia is a one sided condition – meaning, it affects only one side of the face. However, facial neuralgias can even affect both the sides. Typically, the condition becomes quite painful, often intense and penetrating, and facial muscles too are affected with the movements.
