Trigeminal Neuralgia/Face Pain
I was diagnosed with Trigeminal Neuralgia (TN), pinched nerve, and a herniated disc the summer of 2007. I was miserable!
After having the Gamma Knife Procedure to treat my TN, I got my life back from the tremendous misery and damage done to my Trigem nerves; but I was not completely healed from my back issues with the pinched nerve and herniated disc.
I also was diagnosed with a stress fracture to my right foot in 2007, which was very painful. After being successfully treated for the stress fracture, you can see the issues I brought to the table when I decided to see Dr. Michlin in 2009.
After several trips to a pain management specialist for back injections in my back, I invited Dr. Michlin to speak to our North TX / DFW TNA Support Group in 2009, as an Atlas Orthogonal Chiropractor to give alternative treatment options to our group for upper cervical treatments.
Dr. Michlin gave a phenomenal presentation on Neurology of the Fifth Cranial Nerve as it relates to Trigeminal Neuralgia and spoke on how Atlas Orthogonal Chiropractic adjustments works; as well as how it could relieve TN symptoms.
I was excited about what Dr. Michlin presented. Since I am always seeking out ways to alleviate facial pain and back problems, I immediately made an appointment to see Dr. Michlin the summer of 2009, following his presentation to our support group.
I underwent a battery of test and procedures at Dr. Michlin's office. With several visits, a made up mind to do what Dr. Michlin suggested, I began the road to recovery from the pinched nerves and herniated disc.
After getting aligned properly by Dr. Michlin, purchasing a special set of pillows for my neck and back, taking on a healthy diet that consisted of taking fish oil tablets daily, and exercise, I am proud to say, I have not had another pain injection in my back and got relief from my back issues. I am also pain free from my TN facial pain and no more stress fracture problems.
I am so glad I made the decision to invite Dr. Michlin to speak to our support group in 2009; and by the way, he was our speaker this past July 27, 2011. Another job well done!
He gave us invaluable information on Atlas Orthogonal as it relates to Trigeminal Neuralgia and a free surprise gift to all who attended the support group presentation.
Way to go Dr. Michlin!
A satisfied patient of Dr. Christopher Michlin!
