Your Health is our top priority!
Most severe headaches typically arise from the neck or base of the skull. The pain then extends forward to the forehead, temples, eyes and other parts of the head.
In the base of the head are occipital nerves. The irritation or inflammation of these nerves may lead to neuralgiform pain known as occipital neuralgia. In most cases, occipital nerves are responsible for sending pain signals to the brain.
There are several types of headaches which closely resemble occipital neuralgia, for example, tension headaches, sinus headaches, and occasionally migraines. These types of headaches should not be ignored. While there are a lot of medical procedures that can treat headaches, occipital nerve block treatment is the best option to alleviate headaches or head pain caused by occipital neuralgia.
There are many causes of occipital neuralgia such as underlying cervical spine disease, myofascial pain, poor posture, or certain injuries such as a hit to the back of the head or a whiplash type injury may affect the occipital nerves causing headaches.
Advanced Sports & Spine provides quality yet affordable occipital nerve block treatment. This is a holistic and minimally invasive procedure that reduces if not eliminates pain and discomfort from severe headaches arising from your occipital nerves.
Occipital nerve block treatment is a type of steroid injection administered around the greater and lesser occipital nerves. This treatment reduces the swelling of the occipital nerves and the surrounding tissues.
Occipital nerve block injections are composed of local anaesthetics such as lidocaine mixed with steroid. This is a minor medical procedure that is safe and effective. However, occipital nerve blocks are not a treatment for all types of headaches. To ensure that you get the right medication for your headache, it is best to consult with your trusted physiatrist in Charlotte, NC.
Advanced Sports & Spine is a non-facility fees office that ensures exceptional treatment at affordable prices.

This ranges from hundreds if not thousands of dollars depending on the treatment.
Our Charlotte practice is a private medical office that aims to provide alternative pain management procedures while preventing further pain within your budget. We do not charge facility fees so you can focus on getting the pain treatment that you deserve at an affordable price.
