SPG Block - Headache Relief is Here
Updated: Jun 5, 2019
People who suffer from severe chronic headaches understand how difficult it can be to get a correct diagnosis.
They often rebound between expensive specialists, tests and treatments for months or years.
These tests and treatments often leave much to be desired, either pain medications with diminishing value and escalating dependency and side effects or perhaps surgical options without guarantees.
Headaches Take a Toll on The Quality of Daily Life
Meanwhile the toll that chronic pain takes on their lives emotionally, socially and financially accumulates, and the pain becomes the only thing in life one can focus on. We see a lot of patients like this at Vital HealthCare and have success often where others don’t.
We’ve been particularly effective when patients have been given a lazy diagnosis and the cause of headaches has been overlooked. It’s amazing how many migraines are really sinus, TMJ or muscle tensions headaches!
Dr. Griffith has extensive training to administer a technique for relieving three of the most challenging and gruesome headache syndromes: Cluster headache, trigeminal neuralgia and migraine.
SPG Block is a Quick and Painless Way to Relieve Your Headache
The procedure is known as a sphenopalatine Ganglion Block. It involves the insertion of a small amount of anesthetic through the nasal passages to the aggravated nerve that continually generates the pain signal.
This allows the aggravated nerve to finally rest and reset, relieving the headache. It is essentially pain free and can offer long lasting relief when all else has failed.
We Can't Wait to See Your Smile Again!
It's a simple visit requiring only about about 20 minutes in office for long lasting relief. After having the SPG Block, patients have reported immediate headache relief, clearer vision, light sensitivity relief, better ability to smell and an overall feeling of ease and relaxation.
The procedure is essentially pain free and can offer long lasting relief when all else has failed.
