Headaches / Migraines
Whether you are experiencing migraines, sinus headaches or tension headaches, the Pain Relief Clinics of Massachusetts is here to help you. Offering a number of physical medicine and rehabilitation as well as chiropractic services to the residents of Dennis, Woburn, Northborough, and Weymouth MA, our staff’s number one goal is to quickly and effectively relieve the pain associated with your headaches. The following is a sample of our headache and migraine treatment options.
Occipital Nerve Blocks: When the tissues around the occipital nerves–located at the back of the head–become inflamed, it can cause the nerves to become irritated. An occipital nerve block is an injection of local anesthetic and a steroid that reduces inflammation, which, in turn, can relieve headaches.
Sphenopalatine Ganglion Nerve Block: The sphenopalatine ganglion–located in the back portion of the nasal cavity–sends nerves to the face and head. By injecting medication in this area, our doctors can relieve irritated nerves and the associated headache pain.
Upper Cervical Trigger Point Injections: Trigger points can cause referred pain in other parts of the body, including the head. With upper cervical trigger point injections, we can inactivate the trigger point to stop migraines and other headaches.
Posture Pump: Poor posture can impact the nerves, causing pain throughout the body. With the Posture Pump, which is a traction device, we can encourage correct posture and relieve pain.
