Migraines are a very common disorder, affecting over 10 percent of the world’s population. When you’re in the grip of a severe headache or migraine, it is a helpless and debilitating feeling, and many people feel desperate to find any kind of relief that can be given to them. Migraines don’t discriminate; they affect millions of people regardless of age, location, and overall health.
If you find yourself suffering from frequent headaches or migraines, SPG Block could be the non-invasive solution that finally provides the relief you’ve been searching for. Sphenopalatine Ganglion Block is a treatment that involves applying a local anesthetic to the sphenopalatine ganglion nerve cells inside the nose with a long, thin cotton applicator (no needles required!).
How Does SPG Block Treatment Work?
The treatment only takes a couple of minutes and the anesthetic works quickly to block the pain and lasts for many hours or even days. SPG Block works well because the anesthetic is applied directly to the nerves in the back of the nasal cavity and provides almost immediate relief, whereas oral medication and IV treatments take longer to begin working if they even work at all. This can even be done before a migraine begins, so you won’t have to feel any of the dreaded pain or other symptoms whatsoever.
For patients who suffer from chronic headaches and migraines, the idea of commuting to a doctor’s office for treatment regularly probably seems inconvenient, and we totally agree! That’s why at-home SPG Block Treatments are becoming increasingly common. The technique can be taught to patients who need frequent treatments for self-administration purposes. You know your body and medical history best, so when the symptoms of a severe headache or migraine begin to appear, simply find a few minutes to apply the anesthetic and then you can resume your normal daily activities.
