Occipital neuralgia is a headache condition involving the nerves arising from C2 in the back of the neck. The greater and lesser occipital nerves run from the neck, ascending along the back of the head, and can “trigger” severe, debilitating headaches that are often difficult to control with medication alone.
At the Institute for Advanced Reconstruction in New Jersey, we treat patients with occipital neuralgia using the latest treatments, both surgical and non-surgical, to relieve symptoms of this troubling condition.
The doctors at the Insititue for Advanced Reconstruction are performing a groundbreaking procedure, whereby nerve decompression of the occipital nerves is performed using a minimally invasive technique. After this procedure select patients are likely to experience a significant reduction in the frequency and severity of their headaches, or possibly a complete eradication of their symptoms.
