Traditionally, many migraine sufferers have even had to rely on emergency room treatment for pain relief in the form of an injection or develop their own home remedy plan for pain relief.

Today, modern pain relief technology evolution now includes the possibility for a sphenopalatine ganglion nerve block, also referred to as a SPG treatment. This pain relief technique has proved invaluable to those who experience migraines on a regular basis. In addition, the process can reduce pain from a TMJ disorder as well as TMJ migraine headaches.

How the SPG block works

An SPG block involves a minimally invasive treatment application. A specially designed applicator is inserted through the nostrils to the point where the air passage ways connect to the brain at the sphenopalatine nerve. The SPG is a sensitivity nerve gang that is instrumental in almost all types of migraines headaches, as well as other regions of the facial structure.

Once the applicator reaches the SPG, a numbing medication is applied directly to the external portion of the nerve area. For patient comfort, the applicator is designed with soft materials that are excellent for irritation reduction. The return ratio in pain relief from this simple migraine treatment and headache cure has been very positive.

TMJ disorder pain relief

Many migraine headaches are directly caused by disorders in the temporo-mandibular joint where the lower jaw connects to the bottom of the skull just below the ear. Commonly called the TMJ, this is a very complex region of the body and disorders can arise from very slight structural problems.

Very often, these disorders begin with an injury of some type affecting the lower part of the myofascial skeletal structure. Most people do not realize how much the facial muscles are constantly used during the course of a day. Even small problems in the facial muscles and tissue structure, as well as the TMJ, can serve as triggers for referred pain that often manifests as TMJ migraine headaches.

Choose a qualified and specially trained dentistry professional

A typical doctor is often not trained in using this pain relief technique, and regularly opt to treat the symptom instead of the actual pain causation. Until the ultimate medical cause is treated, the migraine headaches will return like clockwork. Finding the right dentistry specialist can mean the difference in struggling with regular bouts of headache pain or implementing a headache cure that stops the pain in one short outpatient visit.
