Face pain can affect any area of the face, including the eyes and mouth. Face pain can arise from a variety of causes, such as shingles, infections, or muscle-and-joint problems. Facial pain is often associated with general headaches or migraines.
A part of face pain, not often mentioned is cranial pain of the muscles and nerves surrounding the skull. These can and often are a result of neck pain that radiates upward and involves the entire head, and might include the face, teeth, jaws, or even ears. Facial pain can have a broad range of causes, and it's very common in people between the ages of 40 to 60.
By adjusting the neck, and Cervical spine, sometimes including the Thoracic spine, there is a good possibility that these adjustments will positively affect the facial or cranial nerve impingement to give relief to “hot spots” that cause great discomfort.
