Occipital Nerve Block for Occipital Neuralgia

Nerve blocks are injections that can help prevent or manage many different types of pain by blocking pain from specific nerves. During an occipital nerve block, Dr. Hashwashi will inject a small amount of local anesthetic and steroid into the scalp at the trunk of your occipital nerve. He will do the injection at the back of your head, just above your neck, using a very fine needle. The results are usually very quick with most patients reporting a resolution of their headache right away.
