Tired of Living with Headaches?

Millions of Americans suff¬er from episodic & chronic migraine and cluster headaches, resulting in 150 million work days lost every year, costing Americans over $10 Billion in direct costs, annually. Sadly, treatment options for headache su¬fferers have not kept pace with treatment advancements in other areas of medicine. Currently there is very little to o¬ffer in terms of safe and efficacious treatment for the chronic headache patient. Nearly two thirds of patients receiving treatment for headaches and migraines discontinue the use of prescription medications due to inadequate relief and unwanted side-e¬ffects.

A Revolutionary Headache Treatment

In as little as a few minutes, our head pain treatment, formally called a sphenopalatine ganglion (SPG) block, provides most patients with immediate relief of headache pain. SPG blocks, administered like a nasal spray, achieve neuromodulation of the sphenopalatine ganglion complex. The sphenopalatine ganglion is a collection of nerve cells located just under the tissue lining the back of the nose. By applying a local anesthetic to the region, nerve impulses can be temporarily blocked, allowing relief from pain. The time-tested efficacy of the procedure allows the patient to have both immediate and sustained results. These positive e¬ffects are typically sustained by subsequent interrupting the chaotic signaling associated with migraine.

A Safe and Effective Choice

The SPG block is clinically shown to provide impressive success rates. The SPG block has been described in the medical literature for over 100 years and has been proven eff¬ective for many painful conditions. Furthermore, it is a low-risk treatment option for patients of all ages (adults and children), as well as pregnant women—with minimal to no side e¬ffects. It is expected to work for all types of migraines and for most types of headache pain, from cluster headaches to trigeminal neuralgia to atypical facial pain and more—with long-lasting relief.

Safe, Effective & Affordable

Most insurance companies, as well as Medicare, cover the SPG block procedure. In addition, if you’re currently taking medicine for migraines, it is highly advised that you explore whether this simple, safe procedure may, over time, replace the need for migraine narcotics (which is of benefit for your health and your wallet). Every patient is diff¬erent, and while some may not find immediate relief, others may experience relief lasting days, weeks or even months. This very safe treatment option is gentle and comfortable. It is a pain management game-changer for anyone who experiences four or more severe headaches a year.
