We are the experts in the region as it relates to botox injections for headaches. In a study of adults who get chronic migraine headaches, injections of Botox cut down the total number of days they had them or even other types of headaches. They also had more “crystal-clear” — pain-free — days each month, and they reported fewer days off work.
sphenopalatine ganglion nerve blocks
What is a Sphenopalatine Ganglion Block? A nerve block is a procedure to stop pain transmission through anesthesia to the nerve. In an SPG block, an anesthetic agent is administered to the collection of nerves in the ganglion. The least invasive way to access the SPG is through the nose
supraorbital nerve blocks
The supraorbital nerve block is similar to the occipital nerve block but located in the eyebrow and used to treat migraine and neuralgias.
occipital nerve blocks
Residing in those areas of the skull base are the occipital nerves. Irritation/inflammation of those nerves may cause a specific type of “neuralgiform” pain: occipital neuralgia. More commonly, however, those nerves serve as major “on-ramps” to the “superhighway” upon which travel the pain signals that produce migraine and other types of headache. If one can block traffic on these busy on-ramps, then it may be possible to halt the flow of pain signal on the superhighway and thus—at least temporarily—halt head pain.
When a trigger point is located in the neck, shoulder, and head muscles, it can cause referred or spreading pain that creates the same pain pattern as that of a tension-type headache. Moreover, some experts believe that prolonged pain input from myofascial trigger points can sensitize the central nervous system, making it more easily excitable or more vulnerable to pain nerves firing. Injections in these trigger points can help relieve this tension.
