hi i was wondering if there are alternative treatments foor tn? if so how good do they work? thanks michelle
The TN Association has had sessions in its national conferences in the past, concerning acupuncture, acupressure, and Upper Cervical Chiropractic. The book "Striking Back" (George Weigel and Ken Casey MD) also summarizes experience with magnet therapy, Vitamin B-12 in various forms, Nutrition, Herbal therapy, Lidocaine and local anesthetics, TENS units, peripheral nerve treatments, and low level laser therapy. In each of these, there are at least a few reports of successful outcomes for some patients -- but no consistent record of long-term pain management in large numbers of patients.
Regards and best,
The best thing to do is buy the book asap! Or see if library has it
