I have had Hemifacial Spasm right side for 2 years, gradually worsening. I have spent a fortune trying to treat the spasms, which twist half my face badly out of shape for anything up to 12 seconds at a time, every few minutes on a bad day.

I want to know, is there anything here that chiropractic can help with?
