Occipital Nerve Block
Chronic migraine headaches can often be relieved by a procedure called an Occipital Nerve Block. Migraine headaches can be absolutely debilitating to those who have them. VIVA Wellness offers the Occipital Nerve Block procedure as a component of our pain management services.
What is an Occipital Nerve Block Treatment?
Similar to Trigger Point Injections, In an occipital nerve block procedure, our nurse practitioner will inject a numbing medication called lidocaine near the back of your skull to numb the occipital nerves which frequently contribute to migraine pain. This is a quick, low-risk pain management procedure and clients typically feel immediate relief post-procedure.
Our nurse practitioner meets each of our clients to learn about their pain management issues. Following the initial consultation, she will design a plan to help you alleviate your pain and get back to your life.
