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.

Surgery was a success my left knee is fully functional again. Langer and his staff was very helpful through this entire process they assigned me a top physical therapist Cara which was great at helping me to improve now just up to me to continue to condition myself back to the way I was physically before the injury and hopefully I never have to endure any future injuries that lead to surgery. Overall a great help and experience after surgery was completed. Thank You to Langer and his staff.

Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians are excellent in the work they do. They take their time with each patient and make sure you walk away with an understanding of exactly what you're going through. I have been a patient here twice and I could 100% assure you that you will have a great experience. Further the physicians are very knowledgeable and experienced at what they do. Moreover, the entire staff are welcoming and accommodating to your needs. I work in Entertainment, and have appeared several times on television (Google "David Wells and Ricky Johnson). I recommend and trust Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians.
