SPG Block – Migraine Treatment

Do you suffer from chronic migraines or frequent headaches of a severe nature? If so, it’s time to do something about the pain and discomfort. Migraines can drive your life to a halt without warning and can hinder you from living your life to the fullest. But the good news is there are treatments that could help you relieve your pain and help you begin living your best life.

SPG Nerve Block

This migraine treatment is quite simple and can be very helpful when it comes to headache discomfort. The FDA has approved three unique and special devices for this procedure. SPG is short for sphenopalatine ganglion and refers to a group of nerve cells that can be found behind the bony part of your nose. This bundle of nerves is important to treat because they are linked to a nerve called the trigeminal nerve. This is nerve is often involved in severe headache disorders and can be targeted to give you some relief.

The Procedure

With specialized tools, an anesthetic agent can be put on your collection of nerves in the ganglion. This anesthetic is administered through the nose, in order to be minimally invasive. There are also laser treatments being developed to help administer this procedure.

The SPG Block procedure can treat more than just migraines. It’s been known to treat vasomotor rhinitis, facial pain, temporomandibular disorder, neck or head cancer, CRPS, trigeminal neuralgia, and nasal contact point headache.
