“It is grossly irresponsible for anyone to promote this, until Burzynski pulblishes the results of his trials in peer reviewed journals, and demonstrates that his treatment works.

Marcie S Jacobs on Dec 1, 2013 at 17:28:37

“What is grossly irresponsible is the FDA not allowing this treatment to move forward. They have tried to put Dr. Burzynski out of business for 20 years but the FDA is losing its power to smear, control and regulate on behalf of its paymasters the pharmaceutical companies that don't want competition for its useless drugs that rarely cure cancer like Dr. Burzynski.”

Thatv answer suggests you stimulate ordinary nerves rather than move bone, which you'd need to do to correct a "subluxation"”

“"Researchers?" Which ones?
Link to a paper or it isn't true!
OK I 'll grant that the trigeminal nucleus extends the length of the brainstem, but force on the neck powerful enough to get to the nucleus there would be powerful enough, by definition, to affect CNS, ie the whole of the rest of the spinal cord. Force enough to have a physiological effect on the spinal trigeminal nucleus that does not interfere with the tracts and grey matter! The chiropractors hands must have the precision of a smart bomb attack!”

“The mechanism is not force per se but stimulation or activation, if you will, via muscle spindles or mechanoreceptors which fire electrical impulses.. and, yes! It IS an Art, to be able to know when and where to Do these things!”

“If the atlas joint were deranged in some way, she would have felt pain in her neck. The trigeminal nerve does not go anywhere near the atlas! It's a cranial nerve, and exits the the cns via the skull. How could cracking her neck possibly have helped?

You need at least a plausible mechanism in your anecdotes. A study of chiropractic and trigeminal neuragia in a reputable journal would be better.”

shellyamber on Oct 3, 2012 at 17:19:07

“Researchers have determined that TN pain originates from damage not only to the Trigeminal nerve in the face but also from damage to the central Trigeminal system in the upper spinal cord and the ponto-medullary levels in the brainstem.1-5 Therefore, trauma to the head and neck (concussive trauma to the head, neck, or upper back) that results in injury to nerve pathways in the spinal cord and brain stem has been shown in medical literature to be a possible cause of TN.5-15 Following the trauma, facial pain can be triggered immediately or can take months or years to develop.”
