Miami SPG Migraine Doctor (786) 500-5347- Headache Specialist Aventura Sphenopalatine Ganglion Block


Help if you suffer from migraines. Local 10 medical specialist Kristi Krueger
has news of this innovative new treatment that only takes a few minutes and can really
help make that pain disappear.>>Jenny Watson: Frustrating, painful, really
debilitating. It started probably when I was a teenager. Frequency can be once a week to a headache
that lasts 3 or 4 days.>>Kristi: That’s 42 year old medical office
manager Jenny Watson talking about the migraine headaches that plagued her for almost 30 years. She has worked and raised a family all while
dealing with the excruciating pain of chronic headaches. Migraines are especially debilitating because
they have unusual symptoms like noise and light sensitivity and more.>>Dr Gropper: Nausea, sometimes vomiting. They frequently has something called an aura
which are visual changes. Seeing wavy lines or halos or haziness.>>Kristi: But Doctor Adam Gropper is offering
something new to patients like Jenny using x-ray guidance with tiny catheters the Doctor
goes through the nasal cavity to directly place medicine in the exact spot that causes
migraine headaches and facial pain.>>Dr Gropper: The sphenopalatine ganglion
in the back of the nose and a lot of the sensory nerves for the face intersect there.>>Kristi: Dr Gropper quickly finds that cluster
of nerves and uses lidocaine to numb the area and block the pain. The entire procedure only takes about 5 minutes. Patients do see relief in about 15 minutes.>>Jenny: I had a terrible headache that lasted
a couple of days and we proceded with having the procedure done and I haven’t had a headache
since.>>Kristi: Which is why Jenny is now having
the sphenopalatine ganglion block or SPG block done again to hopefully help prevent the next
migraine.>>Jenny: It’s wonderful. I’m ecstatic!>>Kristi: And the SPG block, like botox shots
used to treat migraine headaches is not really a cure but will need to be done every few
months but Doctor Gropper tells me that insurance does usually cover the cost. With your health cast today I’m Kristi Krueger.
