Occipital Nerve Blocks
An occipital nerve block involves injecting pain-relieving medication into your greater and lesser occipital nerves. Pain relief may be immediate and usually lasts as long as the numbness, sometimes the relief may be long lasting.
Botox injections are a minimally invasive treatment option for migraine headaches. Botox blocks the release of pain transmission chemicals in nerve endings around the injection site preventing the activation of pain networks in the brain.
