Migraine Headaches

A migraine is an intense, throbbing headache that may be accompanied by nausea or dizziness. A migraine can last from hours to days.

Occipital Neuralgia (Arnold’s Neuralgia)

This condition is a distinct type of headache caused by irritation or injury of the occipital nerves. These nerves travel from the base of the skull through the scalp. This condition can result in severe pain and muscle spasms.

Sphenopalatine Ganglion (SPG) Block (Injection Technique)

This is an injection of numbing medicine. It is delivered to the area around a bundle of nerves called the “sphenopalatine ganglion,” which lies deep within your face. This injection can be used to diagnose or to treat problems linked to these nerves.
