Acupuncture for Relief of Trigeminal Neuralgia

Maryland Holistics provides safe and effective non-surgical treatment for patients with trigeminal neuralgia. This is a rare condition which results in intense facial pain. In our experience, patients with this condition tend to recover fully within 6 acupuncture sessions. Our method is to provide the final two sessions as a fine-tuning approach after the condition has largely improved. Using this approach, our patients improved reasonably quickly and without any reported side-effects or recurrence.

It appears to us that the treatment of this condition with acupuncture requires an acupuncturist with a high level of skill and attention to safety. This is due to the sensitive anatomy of the affected area. In our practice we use a combination of procedures which promote safety as well as the highest level of treatment accuracy achievable with available technology.

Healthcare Tourism Option

For certain cases which are pre-qualified by phone, Dr. Windsor is now offering a healthcare tourism accelerated treatment plan for trigeminal neuralgia over a period of 12 days. This newly available treatment schedule was designed for individuals who are outside of the Baltimore-Washington area. In this way, the time away from home can be significantly reduced compared to the 6-week treatment plan which we have generally used for local patients.

The purpose of pre-qualification is to maximize the likelihood that the prospective patient will be satisfied with the treatment outcome and with their overall experience. Our serene, professional office is located approximately 20 minutes from the Baltimore-Washington Airport. Please contact us prior to making travel arrangements or hotel reservations.
"Acupuncture assists with many types of nerve inflammation and fortunately it works in the cases of trigeminal neuralgia that I have personally treated. Because this is a non-surgical treatment, there are no surgical side-effects, risks, or recovery period with this type of treatment. To my knowledge, my patients also did not require any medications for the condition after the short course of treatment."

Dr. Eric Windsor, D.Ac.
