Migraine Relief Available at Superior Family Medical Center

There is a collection of nerve cells located in the lining at the back of the nose that control face and head pain.  Nerve impulses can be temporarily blocked, providing pain relief, by applying a local anesthetic to the group of nerves. 

The SphenoCath® procedure, which is simple, gentle and a comfortable in-office technique, provides immediate relief for most patients and has the potential relief time of 3 to 6 months.  This is a needle-free procedure covered by most insurance companies and Medicare.  The SphenoCath® is Safe for most patients including children and pregnant women.  Many patients are able to discontinue migraine or headache prescription medication after this procedure.  Average patients may need 3-4 treatments in the first year, with effects projected to last longer between each treatment.  You may contact Superior Family Medical Center with any questions or to schedule an appointment, 402-879-4781.
