Treatment for Headaches and Migraines

A greater occipital nerve block is an interventional treatment that can be used to treat tension headaches and migraines. The procedure involves injecting a combination of an anesthetic and a steroid into the space surrounding the greater and lesser occipital nerves that are located on the back of the head, just around the neck area. A greater occipital nerve block serves to reduce the inflammation and swelling of tissue around the occipital nerves thereby reducing the pain and irritation.

The Interventional Spine physicians from Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians are highly experienced in administering greater occipital nerve blocks. Using this advanced interventional treatment, we are able to help our patients who suffer from migraines and tension headaches get relief from their pain and other symptoms so they can enjoy an improved quality of life. This outpatient procedure takes only a few minutes to complete and most patients are able to return to normal activities the same day as the procedure.
