Occipital Nerve Injections

Occipital Nerve Injections are performed in order to reduce pain and inflammation around the occipital nerves. It has also been proven to reduce pain from headaches, tension headaches, and migraine headaches. The procedure takes only a few minutes.

First, the skin and hair on the back of the head (where the occipital nerve is located) are cleaned with an antiseptic solution. After that, we inject the nerve with a local anesthetic and steroid mixture. There is mild pain from this injection but most of the area is numb to reduce the pain from occurring. The steroid injection takes three to five days to see pain alleviation and has been reportedly kept patients pain free for several days up to a few months.
