Occipital Neuralgia Treatment

At Coastal Headache Clinic in Jacksonville, NC, we want to help you experience relief from debilitating and excruciating headaches. Call (910) 238-2050 today!

Occipital neuralgia is a type of headache from inflamed and irritated occipital nerves in the upper neck, resulting in head, scalp, and neck pain. Many people experience sharp, burning sensations across the scalp and behind the eyes or radiating pain where the neck and skull meet. 

Our Effective Occipital Neuralgia Treatment Options

After we diagnose occipital neuralgia, our expert team will analyze your symptoms and medical history to create an effective treatment plan for reducing your pain. 

Nerve Blocks

Nerve blocks are a popular treatment option that can provide immediate relief in flare-ups. The injection typically includes a numbing medication or steroid to reduce pain. 

Massage and Heat Therapy

Massage and heat therapy can ease the tight muscles around your neck and the base of your skull, reducing pain. We can also teach you at-home massage methods for daily relief. 

Botox Injections

Botulinum toxin, or Botox, is an injection that can decrease inflammation and provide long-lasting relief. If you see success, we can continue with Botox treatments every few months for sustained results. 

Prescription Medications

Certain prescription medications can reduce pain and target the root causes of your occipital neuralgia. Depending on your symptoms and history, we may prescribe:

  • Anticonvulsants that control brain activity
  • Muscle relaxants for reduced tension and pain
  • Anti-inflammatories (non-steroidal)

Surgical Treatments

If you don’t see success with the above methods, we can try a more aggressive treatment, like surgery. Occipital nerve stimulation involves inserting electrodes in your occipital nerve for pain signaling control. We can also try spinal cord stimulation, which places electrodes on your spinal cord.
