NERVE ENTRAPMENT HEADACHE

DIAGNOSIS CONSULTATION

NERVE ENTRAPMENT HEADACHE


In last ten years, LF headache research team found that some types of headache with different symptoms, including migraine-like, can be caused by sensory nerve entrapment in different areas of the face and neck – frontal, temporal, occipital. They have suggested the name – secondary headache attributed to peripheral nerve entrapment. 

Importantly, they discovered that these headaches can be alleviated in over 90 percent of cases, with new minimally invasive surgical treatment - popularly called "migraine surgery".

The procedure involves decompression of peripheral sensory nerve branches in different face and neck areas (frontal, temporal and occipital), which are the migraine trigger points.

Symptoms

In our practice, these patients suffer from:

  • Frequently occurring headache (> 15 days per month) 
  • Severe pain on visual analog score 6 – 10
  • Described as a localized pressure or tension
  • Often accompanied by photophobia and sometimes by nausea

Causes

  • Frontal – supraorbital and supratrochlear nerve 
  • Temporal – auriculotemporal nerve
  • Neck - greater and lesser occipital nerve

THERAPY


LF Headache Centre offers for this type of headache two procedures:

  • Non-invasive - BOTOX® injections
  • Minimally invasive - migraine surgery

DIAGNOSIS


We use our own LF screening protocol which comprises of several tests that enable us to form an individualized treatment approach.
