Studing nerve endings for Blocking Treatments for Migraine Surgery

 

What is Nerve Block Treatment?

For patients who suffer from migraine headaches due to nerve compression or nerve injury we use Nerve Block treatment to “put the nerve to sleep” with a local anesthetic. Nerve Block treatment is similar to the way Novacaine is used by your dentist.

Much like Botox, Nerve Block Treatment is a diagnostic test to determine if a patient’s migraines are caused by a compressed or injured nerve. Nerve Block treatment is not meant as a continual treatment for migraines.

Nerve Block treatment typically provides relief for 4-6 hours, but some patients have experienced prolonged headache relief for 3-14 days.

Complications may include: tenderness at the injections site for 24 hours, and slight bruising.
