In this week’s blog we will be discussing Migraines.

 

Can Migraines Really Be A Thing of The Past?

 

Migraines are periodic throbbing headaches on one or both sides of the head. Other side effects include nausea, vomiting, increased sensitivity to light, increased sensitivity to sound, dizziness, as well as other symptoms. Migraines typically last 4-72 hours and occur as often as several times a week. Migraines can affect your work, family and social lives.

Typically treating migraines consists of over the counter drugs, caffeine, a dark/quiet room, good sleep, yoga, ice pack, etc. Many people who suffer from migraines suffer from depression and have trouble sleeping. Here at Move Well MD we have found a solution that can significantly reduce the amount of migraines you get.

Move Well MD can reduce your frequent headaches with a novel approach called an SPG (Sphenopalatine Ganglion) Block. The SPG block is done using a patented applicator to ensure proper placement. The SPG block is located just deep to the nasal mucosa posterior to the middle nasal turbinate. The SPG can be blocked by diffusion of local anesthetic through the overlying mucosa. Sensory, sympathetic and parasympathetic fibers pass through or synapse in the SPG, making it a key structure in various types of painful headaches. Temporarily blocking function of the SPG can provide prompt, and sustained relief of painful headaches and migraines. It is theorized that performing an SPG block provides sustained relief by disrupting dysfunctional neuronal activity, allowing restoration of normal function. No Sedation is required for this procedure.
