Caudal Epidural Blocks
Sphenopalatine Ganglion Nerve blocks
The sphenopalatine ganglion block is a short noninvasive procedure that is effective in treating some acute and chronic headaches and head and neck pains. This ganglion is a cluster of nerves inside the middle of the skull which connects to several areas of the head so can be used to treat a variety of conditions.
- Migraine headaches
- Acute and cluster headaches
- TMJ pain
- Herpes zoster (shingles)
- Atypical facial or head pain
- Head and neck cancer
- Complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS)
- Chronic vasomotor rhinitis not controlled by medication
- Sluder’s Neuralgia
Depending on your pain condition there are many other possible nerve blocks that may be helpful. I may use my ultrasound machine to provide this service.
