Chronic Headache Treatment in Woodridge, IL: Headaches are defined as pain anywhere in the region of the head or neck. It occurs as migraines, tension-type headaches or cluster headaches, which are all considered headaches but each have specific qualities in diagnosis. Headaches can cause long-term damage mentally and physically, and can easily affect day-to-day life. About half of adults experience headaches at least every year, with tension headaches being the most prevalent.
Headaches are a significant source of stress and pain for many people, they affect over 11% of the American population and cost $2.4 billion each year in health care dollars and lost productivity.
Headaches Can Cause Debilitating Symptoms
Headaches are something that many people deal with, but it is not a necessary part of life. Headaches often result from traction to or irritation of the meninges and blood vessels. Blood vessel spasms, dilated blood vessels, inflammation or infection of meninges and muscular tension can also stimulate nociceptors (a sensory receptor for painful stimuli) and cause pain. These can be caused by primary issues going on in the body or secondary, and some headaches are difficult to find the primary cause of them, but most of them tie into problems involving the nerves.
Stop headaches without medication through a newly developed, needle-less intranasal technique at our facility
A new, innovative therapy is now available and offered at Advanced Wellness called the Sphenopalatine Ganglion Block. The sphenopalatine ganglion sits in the back of your nasal turbinates (see image).
Through a newly developed, needle-less, intranasal infusion technique, we are now capable of blocking this nerve which has been shown to be the cause of multiple forms of headaches including:
- Tension headaches
- Cluster headaches
- Migraine headaches
- Atypical headaches, etc.
A procedure that takes literally 10 seconds! Not only is this procedure fast and needle-less, but it is incredibly effective and the results are typically felt in less than 90 seconds. Imagine being virtually pain free in minutes!
We project that this treatment option will change the way that headaches are treated around the world. Currently, it is only being offered in a few clinics, and our Nurse Practitioner or Physician Assistant has had hands-on training with the medical doctor who developed the tools for this procedure.
