Occipital Nerve Blocks
Occipital nerve blocks are a non-invasive form of treatment for chronic headaches. People who suffer from headaches generally report experiencing throbbing pain in the skull that radiates from the head to the neck. Blocking the occipital nerve disrupts the transmission of pain signals and, in doing so, decreases the occurrence of headaches. This procedure provides significant pain relief for several months by treating inflamed nerves in the occipital region.
