Understanding Occipital Neuralgia

Occipital neuralgia is a form of neuropathic pain characterized by sudden, sharp, shooting sensations in the posterior head and neck region. It typically affects the distribution of the greater, lesser, and third occipital nerves, causing severe discomfort and tenderness in the affected area. While the exact cause of occipital neuralgia remains uncertain, it is often associated with chronic entrapment of the occipital nerves by the muscles in the neck and scalp.

Expert Diagnosis and Evaluation

At our clinic, we employ advanced diagnostic techniques to accurately identify and evaluate occipital neuralgia. Our experienced physicians will conduct a thorough examination, assessing your symptoms and medical history to formulate a personalized treatment plan. We may perform occipital nerve blocks to confirm the diagnosis and provide immediate pain relief, allowing us to tailor our approach to your specific needs.

Comprehensive Treatment Options

Once diagnosed, we offer a range of comprehensive treatment options to alleviate your symptoms and improve your quality of life. Our services include:

Occipital Nerve Blocks

An effective diagnostic and therapeutic procedure, occipital nerve blocks involve the injection of anesthetic agents to provide immediate pain relief. By targeting the affected nerves, we can interrupt the pain signals and alleviate discomfort, allowing you to experience long-lasting relief from your symptoms.

In addition to nerve blocks, we may prescribe medications to manage your pain and reduce nerve sensitivity. These oral agents can complement other treatment modalities, providing sustained relief from occipital neuralgia.
