SPG Block: A Non-Surgery Alternative for Eliminating Migraines

SPG block

Migraines are a debilitating problem for many people. The pain can be so severe that it keeps people from going about their everyday lives. They can keep you from doing the things you love or even going to work. Some people turn to surgery to eliminate migraines, but this is not the only option. If you are looking for a non-surgery alternative to eliminate your migraines, SPG block may be the answer for you. This procedure is minimally invasive and has shown to be very effective in eliminating migraine headaches. 

What Is an SPG Block?

SPG block is a minimally invasive procedure involving injecting a local anesthetic into the sphenopalatine ganglion, a cluster of nerves located behind the nose. This block can be performed in an outpatient setting and does not require general anesthesia. The procedure only takes a few minutes to perform, and most people report feeling relief from their migraines within 24 hours.

How Long Do SPG Block Effects Last?

The effects of SPG block are not permanent, but they are long-lasting. Most people who have the procedure will experience relief from their migraines for six months to a year. Some people may even find that their migraines go away thoroughly after having the procedure.

Are There Any Side Effects?

There are very few side effects associated with SPG block, and most of them are mild and temporary. The most common side effect is bruising or swelling at the injection site. Other potential side effects include headache, sinus pressure, and dizziness. These side effects usually resolve within a few days.

Benefits of SPG Block Over Surgery

  • SPG block is a relatively short procedure done in an outpatient setting. You will not have to stay in the hospital overnight and can go home the same day.
  • SPG block is less expensive than surgery and has a shorter recovery time.
  • Recovery from SPG block is usually just a few days, while recovery from surgery can take several weeks.
  • SPG block is less invasive than surgery and carries a lower risk of complications. It is a good option for people who are not candidates for surgery or do not want to undergo surgery.

Epigenetic Orthodontics

Epigenetic Orthodontics can open and protect the airway enhancing breathing both during sleep and awake activities.

Dr. Buck practices a philosophy that integrates airway into all diagnosis and treatments. Dentistry has traditionally not considered the airway when planning dental treatments. Fortunately, today there is a rapidly growing movement that now recognizes how dentistry can have an impact on the airway which affects breathing during sleep. If dental treatments, including TMJ, orthopedic and orthodontics are well planned the result can be that the airway is protected or even enhanced. There is a clear link between underdeveloped and retruded jaws together with narrow dental arches that puts a patient at risk for sleep breathing disorders.
