Manhattan Experts with Sphenopalatine Blocks, performed by Matthew Spiegel, MD

Overview:

The sphenopalatine ganglion is a small bundle of nerve cells located in the skull, behind the nose. It is involved in the regulation of various functions, including the sensation of pain, control of blood flow to the head, and regulation of tear production. The sphenopalatine ganglion block consists of injecting a local anesthetic into the nasal cavity, temporarily numbing or blocking the nerve impulses to the ganglion. This procedure may alleviate pain and other symptoms associated with conditions such as migraines, cluster headaches, facial pain, trigeminal neuralgia, and certain nasal conditions.
