If you are suffering from head/neck pain or especially chronic neck pain and migraines you should look into an Occipital Nerve Block. An occipital nerve block is an injection of a steroid or other medication around the greater and lesser occipital nerves that are located on the back of the head just above the neck area.
The steroid injected reduces the inflammation and swelling of tissue around the occipital nerves. This may, in turn, reduce pain, and other symptoms caused by inflammation or irritation of the nerves and surrounding structures. Typically, headaches over the back of the head, including certain types of tension headaches and migraine headaches, may respond to occipital nerve blocks.Request Appointment
