Effective Migraine Treatment: “SPG Block”

When the pain of migraine is not under control with medicines, pain management experts at Spartanburg Regional Healthcare System can offer other options for relief. One is a new procedure called the SPG block. We are one of the few facilities in the region to offer it for the serious pain of migraine.

SPG stands for sphenopalatine ganglion, a group of nerves near the nose cavity that sometimes causes migraine, face and head pain. During the five-minute, pain-free SPG block procedure, an interventional radiologist delivers lidocaine, a pain-reliever, directly to these nerves. Relief is often immediate and lasting, without the need for other injections or other medicines.

See a video about the SPG block procedure at Spartanburg Medical Center.
