A Revolutionary Solution for Severe Migraine Sufferers

Balance Epigenetic Orthodontics - March 11, 2023 - 0 comments

Imagine a world where the debilitating pain of migraines is a thing of the past. There’s a cluster of nerves at the back of the nose that might hold the key to severe headache relief. That cluster of nerves is the Sphenopalatine Ganglion (SPG). The connection between the SPG and migraines has led to a non-invasive procedure called the SPG Block which can provide real relief for migraine sufferers.

Who is Affected by Migraines?

According to The Migraine Institute, about 35 million Americans suffer from migraine headaches. These episodes can be absolutely debilitating, often accompanied by other symptoms such as disturbances in vision, tremendous pain, nausea, and vomiting. Migraines have the potential to ruin your day, week, or life, leaving you with little hope for relief.

The Sphenopalatine Ganglion

The SPG is a cluster of nerves located at the back of the nose that is responsible for controlling pain and other sensations in the face. It works in coordination with the trigeminal central sensory nucleus in the brain, which has been identified as a point of interest in migraines. The cause of migraines is not fully understood, but it is believed that the SPG plays a key role in the onset and progression of migraines.

SPG Block for Migraines

The SPG block is a non-invasive procedure in which a flexible rubber catheter tube is gently inserted into the nostril. From there, the catheter releases an anesthetic to the Sphenopalatine ganglion, targeting the migraine-producing location in the brain. The treatment is easy and non-invasive, and patients can feel relief in just a few minutes. Relief can last for days, weeks, or even months, and multiple treatments can be provided if needed.
