Nick had on onset of severe chronic headache and sinus pain. He has been on a journey looking for an answer to his chronic daily facial pain, sinus pain and headache.

Approximately 1 hour before this video he came into my Highland Park office looking for an answer to three years of living with orofacial pain and chronic sinus headache. This video is at the end of the visit after he has learned how to self administer the SPG Blocks with cotton-tipped nasal catheters that offer continual delivery of lidocaine anesthetic to the mucosa over the Pterygopalatine fossa that thru to the ganglion.

There is over 100 yeqrs of safety in this procedure first described in 1903 by Dr Greenfeld Sluder the chairman of the otolaryngology clinic at Washington University Medical School in St Louis.

An article published in 1930 looked at 10,000 Sphenopalatine Ganglion Blocks in over 2000 patients with incredible relief of pain for head, neck and facial pain including all types of eye pain, ear pain and nasal / sinus pains as well as treating Cluster Headache, Tension Headaches and Migraines
