Chronic and acute Migraine Headache relief can be achieved with breakthrough procedure called a SPG BLOCK.
So many people suffer from migraines in Nashville – yet there are few options for relief, but Downtown Dental will soon offer a new breakthrough therapy for migraine treatment.
SPG is a revolutionary procedure for immediate relief from chronic and acute migraines, cluster headaches, and others. The treatment is performed without needles or pills by properly administering a small amount of anesthetic into each nostril and takes about five minutes. The anesthetic can “turn off” or “reset” the nerve pathways that keep headaches going and can work for people that have not responded to other treatments and medications.
The SPG is a collection of nerve cells located just under the tissue lining the back of the nose. By applying a local anesthetic to the area, nerve impulses can be temporarily blocked, providing relief from various types of pain.
Most types of facial or head pain can be treated with an SPG block. Temporarily blocking function of the SPG can provide prompt, and sometimes sustained, relief of pain. It is theorized that an SPG block provides sustained relief by disrupting dysfunctional neuronal activity, allowing restoration of normal function.
There are very few circumstances in which an SPG Block cannot be used. There are no incapacitating effects like drowsiness or impaired function which would prevent you from continuing with your normal day.
