Advanced Medical Imaging Offers 10-Minute Procedure for Chronic Headache Relief

Aware that changes in the weather can cause debilitating pain, Advanced Medical Imaging (amimaging.com) is offering 10-minute procedures that can result in instant and lasting relief for chronic headache victims. In the past, many patients either had to suffer through pain or take medications that interfere with day to day activities.

The procedure is known as a sphenopalatine ganglion (SPG) block. The physicians at Advanced Medical Imaging use image guidance to direct a soft SphenoCath catheter through the nasal passage to deliver medicine to a bundle of nerves. The procedure is safe for children and pregnant women. Along with treating migraine headaches, the SphenoCath procedure can also decrease pain associated with cluster headaches and trigeminal neuralgia.

For migraine sufferers, the ups and downs of thermometers and barometers in the early summer are more than just inconvenient—they’re unbearable. Weather changes are one of the leading causes of migraine headaches, according to the Mayo Clinic.

“Eighteen percent of American women, 6% of men, and 10% of children experience migraines,” according to the Migraine Research Foundation. “Every 10 seconds, someone in the U.S. goes to the emergency room complaining of head pain and approximately 1.2 million visits are for acute migraine attacks.”

Advanced Medical Imaging physicians are vascular and interventional radiologists who specialize in minimally-invasive image-guided procedures. Due to their experience and success rate, Advanced Medical Imaging is the only SphenoCath Certified Training Center of Excellence in the country. Physicians from across the country travel to Nebraska to be trained in this migraine treatment procedure by Advanced Medical Imaging physicians.
