Headaches, wounds, and trauma all result in head pain. It could be a complication of an underlying condition, brought on by certain triggers, the outcome of an accident, or the result of an injury. Mild to severe headaches can range in intensity and feel either sharp or dull. The discomfort could be ongoing or intermittent.

Treatment for Head Pain

At Southern Pain & Spine Specialists, we offer Charlotte head pain therapy to help you feel better. We treat the cause of headaches by using a multidisciplinary approach to pain management. Depending on the underlying cause, many approaches to treating head pain or headaches may be used, such as drugs, therapies, trigger avoidance, injections, and therapies. If over-the-counter painkillers are ineffective, medical attention is required.


Patients who have unsuccessfully attempted to treat their head discomfort with over-the-counter medication may need to seek assistance. Medical assistance is also required if the pain is ongoing, severe, or the result of a catastrophic accident. Patients who have any of the following symptoms may benefit from treatment for head pain:

• Frequent head pain

• Lack of response to at-home therapies or pain relievers

• Disabling attacks of pain


Selective Nerve Block (SNRB) Injection

Headaches, migraines, and irritation or inflammation of the nerves can all result in head pain. Pain, numbness, and tingling feelings result from this. Nerve blocks, like the selective nerve block injection, assist in preventing the brain from receiving pain signals, so reducing pain. For patients with chronic headaches, nerve blocks may provide pain relief for up to many months in the treatment of headaches and migraines.

Occipital Nerve Blocks

The occipital nerves are located at the skull’s base. Occipital neuralgia, which causes pain signals to be sent to the brain, is brought on by irritation or inflammation of these nerves. Sharp, throbbing pain is experienced by occipital neuralgia patients. Occipital nerve blocks work by preventing the brain from receiving pain signals, which helps to reduce head pain.

Trigger Point Injections

Muscles can have sensitive, painful trigger points. This trigger point has the potential to hurt not only the targeted muscle, but also other locations, such as the head. A trigger point injection relieves tension and discomfort in both the local and distant parts of the muscle by injecting a drug into the muscle. Within a few days after receiving treatment, patients report feeling less discomfort.


Depending on the type, location, degree, and location of the injury, head discomfort may vary. Typical head and/or migraine conditions include:

• Occipital Neuralgia

• Migraine

• Secondary headaches caused by injury or concussion

• Tension headaches
