Occipital Nerve Blocks

The greater occipital nerve, which allows for sensation in these regions, can become irritated or inflamed, leading to pain along the back or top of the head. Many patients describe this sensation as beginning at the base of the skull on one side and radiating to the eyes, forehead, and/or temple.

By performing steroid blocks in the occipital nerve, located in the back of the head, patients can find relief. This treatment is most successful in individuals with migraines, cluster headaches, spondylosis of the cervical facet joints, and occipital neuralgia. It can take several days for the treatment to take effect but relief can last for months in some cases.
