Alternative medicine

By Mayo Clinic Staff

Alternative treatments generally haven't been as well-studied as medications or surgical procedures, so there's often little evidence to support their use. However, some people have found improvement with these treatments. Be sure to check with your doctor before trying an alternative treatment because it may interact with your other treatments.

Complementary and alternative treatments that have been used for trigeminal neuralgia include:

  • Acupuncture
  • Biofeedback
