FAQ About Nerve Blocks for Headaches

Which types of headache can you treat with nerve blocks?


We can use nerve blocks to treat migraines, cluster headaches, and other types of chronic pain, like occipital neuralgia.

How can nerve blocks help manage severe headaches?


We often use nerve blocks to stop migraines and other types of pain.

We call this an abortive therapy because it stops the pain from developing when you need a fast and effective solution. This is a short procedure that provides quick relief from migraines and other types of headaches, and the effect can last for weeks and even months. It can also be used to prevent pain from emerging.

We frequently use peripheral nerve blocks to treat different types of headaches. These nerve blocks target the nerves outside the skull (peripheral nerves), making them numb. This way, we can stop them from delivering pain signals to the brain, providing relief almost immediately.

I suffer from constant, severe headaches. Am I a good candidate for nerve blocks?


In our headache treatment centers, our doctors usually recommend nerve blocks when patients can’t find relief in conventional therapies, like off-the-counter medicines.

A headache doctor should always determine if nerve blocks are the best treatment for you. If you’ve had brain surgeries, or if you’ve had bad experiences with nerve blocks in the past, you should inform your pain specialist.

Are nerve blocks effective for headache relief?


Most people can benefit from nerve blocks. In our headache clinics, most patients experience significant pain relief that can last for several weeks. Some of them decide to repeat nerve blocks every few weeks to prevent pain from occurring.

Nevertheless, responses vary in each patient. The duration of pain relief can also be different.

Does this procedure require preparation?


There is no need for preparation before a nerve block procedure.

How long does it take to start working?


Some patients experience an instantaneous effect, for others, it can take a week. Everybody responds differently to nerve blocks.

Remember this is a temporary solution for pain.

How many times can I repeat this procedure?


This depends on your medical history. You can discuss the number of injections you may receive with your pain doctor.
