Migraine and Headache Relief

The sphenopalatine ganglion (SPG) is a large group of nerves (Largest outside cranial cavity). It is located deep in pterigopalatine fossa, behind the root of the nose. It is an autonomic ganglion.The sphenopalatine ganglion (SPG) has sympathetic, parasympathetic and some sensory components.

It is responsible for the nerve supply to the lacrimal gland, paranasal sinuses, glands of the mucosa of the nasal cavity / pharynx, the gingiva, and the mucous membrane and glands of the hard palate. It is not involved in feeling or movement.

The SPG may be affected by trauma, infection or other causes, the sympathetic activity can cause pain. By blocking the sympathetic activity of SPG can stop pain in such cases. 

There is huge scientific evidence for the use of SPG block for the treatment of cluster headache, chronic resistant migraine and other types of headaches.
