Trigeminal neuralgia is a condition that causes extreme, intermittent pain in the trigeminal nerve, which extends from the brain to the face. The best time to receive laser therapy for trigeminal neuralgia is during a period of remission, when the pain is not actively present.
Laser therapy helps to reduce inflammation and promote healing in the trigeminal nerve, which can help to prevent or reduce the frequency and intensity of future episodes of pain. In some cases, laser therapy can also help to improve nerve function and reduce the risk of permanent damage.
For these reasons, it is important to receive treatment during a period of remission, when the nerve is not actively inflamed.
